Spartan STEM Scholarship
The PVCSD Robotics Program has been offering STEM, or science, technology, engineering, and math, opportunities to our district’s students since 2007.
We are proud to say that through our after school robotics classes, robotics camps, and participation in Jr. FIRST LEGO League, FIRST LEGO League, and FIRST Tech Challenge, we are promoting and fostering student interest in STEM at all levels from elementary through high school. We have now grown our program to the extent that we are offering a STEM scholarship.
This scholarship will be an opportunity for a deserving student to continue their STEM focus at the post-secondary level and potentially for a future career.
