Support grows for USC Robotics
Three local companies – Alstom, Mascaro Construction and Thoro.ai – recently pledged their support for the USC Robotics Club, which offers after-school STEAM enrichment opportunities for Upper St. Clair students in grades five through 12. These recent donations bring the total raised to $23,750 – nearly 60 percent of the club’s $40,000 goal for 2022-23.
USC Robotics, which launched in the 2021-22 school year, had an enthusiastic response from students and families. Nearly 300 students in grades 5-12 have already expressed interest in joining the USC Robotics Club for the 2022-23 school year. Boyce and Fort Couch middle schools have reached enrollment capacity and are maintaining waitlists.
In order to support its rapid growth, the USC Robotics Club has set a fundraising goal of $40,000. To reach that goal, the program offers several donor recognition levels for the 2022-23 school year.
To date, 2022-23 donors include the Community Foundation of Upper St. Clair, Alstom, Mascaro Construction, TORC Robotics, DEKA Foundation and Thoro.ai. For more information about USC Robotics or to donate online, visit www.uscrobotics.org.
