Grant Supports Robotics Competition

The February chapter meeting was a joint monthly luncheon held with the National Defense Transportation Association. FIRST Lego League (FLL) team Da Ex Bots delivered a report in appreciation for the chapter providing a $1,000 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) grant to sponsor the FLL Southern IL robotics competition previously cancelled due to bad weather. The tournament was a resounding success allowing tomorrowís technology leaders an opportunity to showcase the results of six months of hard work. Keynote speaker Brig. Gen. Sarah Zabel, USAF, director, command, control, communications and cyber systems (TCJ-6), and chief information officer, U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM), discussed current J-6 activities in support of TRANSCOMís global mission. Cyber Week will kick off in May to include a speaker's panel, training opportunities, scholarship dinner and a scholarship fundraising golf tournament.
