East Bay Chapter of (ISC)2 Awards
Annual Scholarship to James Logan High School Robotics Club
On September 12, 2019, the (ISC)2 East Bay Chapter awarded a scholarship to the James Logan High School Robotics club in Union City, California. This award allows the students to purchase parts to create robots and participate in Robotics competitions. The club’s mission is to offer students an opportunity to participate in engineering and technology activities, build skills in robotics, and guide them to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers, including information security.
The JLHS Robotics club came to the attention of the (ISC)2 East Bay Chapter when the president and co-founder of the Robotics club attended the (ISC)2 East Bay Chapter Spring Conference in April 2019 and met the East Bay Chapter President. In June 2019, several representatives of the club were invited to speak to the East Bay Chapter membership about the club’s mission, competitions, and financial needs, which in turn led to the membership decision to award a scholarship to the JLHS Robotics club for the upcoming school year.
