Honda sponsors FIRST Robotics

The Honda Canada Foundation has signed-on as a sponsor of FIRST Robotics Canada, a non-profit organization that conducts robot-building competitions for teams of high school students. Through this sponsorship, the foundation will provide FIRST with $375,000 over three years, which will be disbursed to 30 teams as $2,000 in funding for the construction of their robots.

“Honda Canada Foundation extends its partnership with FIRST Robotics Canada as we are excited to be a part of their positive influence and exceptional programming for years to come,” said Tony Facciolo, chair of the Honda Canada Foundation. “Engineering and STEM are at the heart of our values at Honda, and we naturally feel it is important to inspire and support the next generation of innovators and problem solvers. We look forward to seeing the best in robotics built from scratch by students competing at the FIRST Robotics Competitions.”
