The Rocket grant

Rob's uncle thought Rocket seemed like a good nickname when Rob Bartel was a child. Little did he know he would grow up to be a brilliant engineer. The Rocket grant was set up in memory of Rob who died May 10, 2020 at the age of 66. Rob was a strong supporter of Kate’s Heart and his contributions will be missed.

Rob had a PhD in electrical engineering and spent his career in computer engineering and software development. This annual grant will be made to a pre-school, co-op school, home school organization, or children's academic center for underprivileged children to receive toys, materials, and projects that focus on engineering and technology.

All funds raised for this grant will go to supporting the annual award. As an all volunteer organization with donated services, we do not have overhead costs. Please join us in honoring this incredible man by donating today.
