Pingree Robotics was recently awarded a $4,000 grant from Analog Devices. AD is a strong supporter of scholastic robotics and makes grants available to schools where employees' children participate in robotics. Syam Veluri (parent of Pranav '19), works for AD and has been instrumental in helping the team prepare the application for the grant this year. This is the third year that Pingree has received such a grant from AD. In previous years, Tom and Eileen Kelly (parents of Peter and Max '17) helped guide the Robotics team through the application process.
In addition, Pingree has received support this year from eStem, a New Hampshire-based robotics parts and training materials distributor. eStem is headed by Michael Ogilvy (brother-in-law to our own Skip Lane), and been generous in lending Pingree some hard-to-find replacement parts for this season.
