Shell Deer Park recently made another positive impact to the community in the form of the Pasadena ISD Education Foundation Prize Parade. On December 16, we joined the Foundation’s Prize Parade and surprised four teachers at Career & Technical High School (CTHS) in Pasadena ISD with a grant for $5000 toward their robotics program aimed at promoting careers in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields.
“It’s always a big deal as we walk down the halls with clappers and shakers making all kinds of noise to make their day,” said Darylene Harris, Shell Shareholder Rep at Shell Deer Park.
CTHS’s program, titled ‘Discovering STEM Education Through Robotics,’ is an innovative approach to offer STEM Education to middle, intermediate, and high school students in PISD. The goal is to spark an interest in Engineering for students who excel in math and science. This is an awesome opportunity for students to explore STEM education and get hands-on skills that will take them into the 21st century. Students will have the opportunity to participate in this program through their Principles of Engineering class, the after school robotics program, and summer enrichment.
