“Tools for Kids Program” Leads to World Championships
Carbide Processors, Inc. recognizes the importance of mentoring our youth and sharing the knowledge and wisdom that we have. We appreciate the skill, passion and patience it takes for teachers and instructors to pass on their gifts.
That is why Tom has created Tools for Kids, a special grant given annually to programs and schools that partner with children in teaching these valuable skills. This grant allows the recipient to choose any of our items up to $500.00 from our website. Please contact Jo at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in applying for this special grant.
One example of the influence of this grant is the VEX program at a middle school in Maryland. Elizabeth Dodson describes the VEX program as this:
“The VEX Robotics program, which is a part of the REC Foundation (http://www.roboticseducation.org/), is an incredible program that fosters STEM in the community, inside and outside of schools. The obvious aspects are engineering and programming but it also teaches kids to present their work to adult judges and to learn to communicate with their peers, since the kids have to figure out how to work together (and against each other!) on the competition field.”
We are honored for the 2nd year in a row to sponsor needed items such as hex keys, (like the Bondus 5/64″ hex keys, or the Bondhus 3/32″ hex keys), safety glasses, (Edge Eyewear) and calipers (Oslun digital calipers). The Vex teams’ motto ‘Nothing But Net” helped lead them to the World Championships hosted in April 2016.
