Amazon executive Arkajit Rakshit presents a $10,000 donation to FIRST Washington and Kentridge High School Chargers robotics team. The donation will support STEM educations and K-12 robotics teams throughout Kent School District.


Global corporate giant Amazon surprised students from Kentridge High School today with a special donation of $10,000 to FIRST Washington to support robotics teams in the Kent School District.




With a strong emphasis on technology and innovation in its business, along with a corporate belief that the jobs of tomorrow will require a stronger aptitude for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the company’s donation today will allow for more students to pursue STEM education outside of the classroom.

“We’re proud to give back to communities where our associates live and work,” said Arkajit Rakshit, director of operations at Amazon’s Kent fulfillment center. “Our growing team in Kent, which started fulfilling customer orders in March 2016, is honored to support the young innovators of tomorrow.”
