Stephanie Benetele Science and Robotics Tournament

The Lee’s Summit Elementary and Middle Schools Gifted students received robotics equipment provided by a fund from Lee’s Summit Education Foundation set up in the memory of Stephanie Bentele and UMKC’s School of Computing & Engineering along with money allocated by the Superintendent’s Operating Team in the spring of 2009. 

On December 5, 2009, these students will participate for the first time in the  “Stephanie Bentele Science and Robotics Tournament”. The Stephanie Bentele fund and the School of Computing & Engineering continue their commitment to Science & Technology, Engineering, and Math education in the LSR7 school district.  Although this tournament will not be held at UMKC, we wish the students only the best for this tournament and all those they enter in the future.
