GEO Jobe Donates to Gulfport Middle School’s Robotics Team

Danny Menikheim, Vice President of Operations at GEO Jobe, and David Hansen, CEO of GEO Jobe present the check to the team leader Michael Quintero of the Pink Diamonds

GEO Jobe is proud to announce the sponsorship of Gulfport Middle School’s Pink Diamonds Robotics team for the second year in a row. GEO Jobe’s sponsorship gives their Team the opportunity to grow in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

Pink Diamonds is the first Gulfport Middle School’s all-female robotics team. GEO Jobe’s donation is in support of their bid to go to the REC Foundation’s VEX Robotics World Championship. Last year the Pink Diamonds qualified for the World Championship and participated in the VEX Robotics competition Tipping Point. This year the team will participate in Spin Up presented by the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation. To prepare for the tournament, the group will work together to design, build, and program a robot using VEX V5, that could quickly and efficiently solve specific challenges that come with playing the 2022-2023 VEX Robotics Competition game. Each week, the students apply what they’ve learned about STEM in the classroom, to build these semi-autonomous machines. 

Pink Diamond’s program utilizes robots to build better minds and future leaders. GEO Jobe’s sponsorship gives the team the opportunity to grow and learn teamwork, work management, communications, and to participate in public outreach. 

“It cannot be overstated how important programs like this are. This robotics team introduces young women to STEM and shows them that their potential career path is full of opportunities they may not have previously realized. We are proud to continue supporting them in this endeavor and wish them the best as they prepare to compete.” – Danny Menikheim, Vice President of Operations at GEO Jobe

GEO Jobe is delighted to be a sponsor to a team of bright, young individuals who are making advancements in the field of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We look forward to seeing their achievements this year and many years to come.
