Symbiosis Foundation

Dear ERGO Participant,

Symbiosis Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) private charity incorporated in Florida.  The foundation was established in 1993 by the four founders of Symbiosis Corporation to support educational programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  The foundation has sponsored science fairs, contests in robotics and rocketry, museum projects, and educational programs to encourage and reward young men and women who are solving real-world problems by applying science and technology.  The foundation is presently run by Tom Bales, President, and Kevin Smith, Chairman.

Symbiosis Foundation is proud to have sponsored:  elementary, middle-, and high-school teams in the FIRST Robotics and Lego League competitions; BotsIQ robot combat teams; curricular and extra-curricular elementary science programs; and, museum exhibits such as the Babbage Engine projects at the London Science Museum.  We are pleased to have sponsored the Lego League program in Haiti, working with Citadelle Robotics Team from Cap-Hatïen. 

Our goal is to make Earth a better place by helping youth discover the excitement and fun of applying science and technology to the problems faced by people the world over.  With the ERGO Energetic Ray Global Observatory, we hope to foster worldwide collaboration among students to engage in original scientific research and experience the thrill of discovery.
