Dynetics has gifted $85,000 to the University of Alabama's College of Engineering in Tuscaloosa. The gift will be split among the new H.M. Comer Hall, the Alabama Astrobotics team and student scholarships. $50,000 will go toward a team room on the second floor of the renovated H.M. Comer Hall set to open in August 2018. The Astrobotics team will be sponsored by Dynetics for the upcoming year and will receive $25,000 of the donation, which is the largest sponsorship the team has ever received from a single company. In addition to travel and operations expenses, the team will use this sponsorship to continue expanding its participation with robotics activities, including the current initiative in place to design and build devices that will assist disabled children. Finally, the remaining $10,000 will be used for student scholarships in Dynetics' name. Ronnie Chronister, vice president of contracts, and Kristina Hendrix, manager of corporate communications, both University of Alabama alumni, were on hand for the check presentation with the College's executives.
