ProEnergy Sponsors Show-Me BEST Robotics Competition

ProEnergy Services recently had the honor of serving as corporate sponsor of the Show-Me BEST (Boosting Engineering Science and Technology) BUGS! competition. The event took place October 22 at State Fair Community College in Sedalia. Thirteen Missouri and Illinois teams made up of middle school and high school students competed.

Partnering with SFCC and other area businesses, ProEnergy’s sponsorship helped provide funds for the kits that students used to build their robots. With guidance from Engineers and technical professionals from local industries, students gained hands-on experience designing, building and marketing their robots. The experience taught students to work as a team while expanding skills in math, engineering and problem-solving.
