Students at Leinkauf Elementary School got some new tools to learn about robotics thanks to the Chevron Fuel Your School program.
Chevron donated LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 robot kits and other robotics building materials to the classroom of Don Fry, who teaches computer science and robotics to students in the third, fourth and fifth grades at Leinkauf. These tools will challenge students current STEM skills and help them expand their knowledge of 3D robotic design beyond computer-based learning.
Through its Fuel Your School program, Chevron has donated more than $300 million to schools worldwide since 2013, including other Mobile County Public Schools. Throughout October, Chevron will donate $1 per fill-up of eight gallons or more at participating Chevron or Texaco locations in Mobile County (up to $150,000) to support public education at schools in Mobile County.
