L3Harris Employees Mentor Students in Robotics Competitions
Monday, December 13, 2021 | Comments

Employees from L3Harris Technologies will foster future innovators by mentoring students on 47 teams to help them participate in robotics competitions around the country.

The mentors will support elementary, middle and high school teams in 15 states including California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

With guidance from L3Harris volunteers and financial assistance from the L3Harris Foundation, student-led organizations will create robots and travel to competitions such as VEX, FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Robotics.

“L3Harris volunteers will help students learn real-world problem-solving skills through team collaborations and hands-on competitions – an approach that has led to some of today’s greatest innovations,” said L3Harris Vice Chair and CEO Christopher Kubasik. “We are proud to support programs that help increase interest in STEM and foster much-needed talent to drive future innovation.”

L3Harris and its employees have supported robotics, rocketry and other student technology challenges for years as part of its overall community commitment, which focuses on philanthropy and employee volunteerism in STEM, mission-aligned and community initiatives. The L3Harris Investing for Tomorrow (LIFT) employee volunteerism program empowered employees to support approximately 530 virtual and other community service projects in 2020.
