Hollis, NH – November 7, 2017 – UltraSource, Inc., a manufacturer of custom thin film circuits is proud to make a two year commitment to help sponsor the newly formed FIRST Lego League Jr and FIRST Lego League teams at four elementary schools in SAU41 located in Hollis, NH and Brookline, NH: Hollis Primary School, Hollis Upper Elementary School, Richard Maghakian Memorial School (Brookline), and Captain Samuel Douglass Academy (Brookline). SAU41 is setting the bar high so it can become one of a handful of school districts in New Hampshire that have a FIRST program in every school in the district.
“Sponsoring a FIRST Elementary program in our own backyard is something that we are happy to do”, said Michael Casper, President and CEO of UltraSource. “We are excited to help students engage in STEM-related programs (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) at an earlier age in their educational careers, and we hope that this experience helps them develop a love for STEM fields. We need to attract more students to advanced manufacturing education and professions, which will ultimately help us address the skills gap that we see in manufacturing areas today. We understand that FIRST programs help students learn to work together as a team, to collaborate and cooperate as they compete, to enhance their work-life skills and self-confidence, and to encourage and inspire innovation, communication, and leadership in what they do. We are happy to be supporting these values that will benefit these students throughout their school years and beyond.”
