Thank you to DOW Chemical and Honda for sponsoring our teams this year! Honda is a new sponsor of ours and we are extremely grateful to them.  DOW Chemical has been our sponsor for the last 6 years and is the reason Bentley School was able to start a robotics club. They have helped immensely with team finances, but they have also worked directly with our students as mentors over the last 4 years. Thank you so much for sponsoring our students!
