BASF supports Ascension Parish’s High School Robotics Team with $6,000 donation
BASF recently presented Ascension Parish’s High School Robotics Team with a $6,000 donation. The donation will support the team as it builds and programs competition robots to participate in VEX Robotics events.
The team is comprised of students from all four high schools including Dutchtown, St. Amant, Donaldsonville and East Ascension in the Ascension Parish school system. The donation is part of BASF’s ongoing efforts to promote and improve science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to local students.
This is the sixth year that BASF supports the team. The company also provides several employee volunteers to support and mentor the team during the year.
