Chevron donates $7,000 to robotic team

Chevron has donated $7,000 to the Hi Fives Robotic Team based at the Business Incubator Center in Grand Junction.

The donation will help the team in its efforts to raise money to cover the 2016 competitive season — including registration fees, travel and the construction of two robots.

The Hi Fives Robotic Team includes a total of 30 students from eight schools along with 18 adult mentors. During the 2015 season, the team won the Xerox Creative Engineering Award as well as a total of four rookie all star and rookie highest seed awards at national contests. The team also participated in a variety of educational presentations for other students as well as demonstrations at various events.
