Enbridge Gas sponsors FIRST Robotics Canada
Energy company Enbridge Gas has signed a sponsorship agreement with FIRST Robotics Canada, a series of science, technology, engineering and math competitions for students. Enbridge will provide support for 12 Ontario secondary school teams who will compete to build robots to perform specific tasks.
“STEM education helps to bridge ethnic and gender gaps that are sometimes found in math and science fields, while challenging students to make sense of complex information, gather and evaluate evidence and make informed decisions,” said Cynthia Hansen, executive vice-president at Enbridge. “FIRST Robotics Canada promotes STEM education and inspires the next generation of science and technology leaders and innovators.”
