Jacobsson Engineering wants to thank everyone who participated in the Botball fundraiser last month. Thanks to the support of everyone involved, Desert Robotics was able to field four teams to the National Conference held in July at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. One of the Desert Robotics teams from Palm Desert Middle School finished in the top 16 out of 74 teams, competing against high school students from three continents. We encourage anyone interested to check out the Botball website at botball.org. Pictured in the photo is Dr. David Miller of NASA interacting with students at the National Conference. Among his many achievements, Dr. Miller was instrumental in the successful deployment of robotic rovers to the planet Mars. If you know someone who would like to participate or you would like to continue to support Desert Robotics, please contact Jacobsson Engineering. We are very proud to be associated with these extremely bright students.

Jacobsson Engineering and some willing employees all pitched in to help a local 14 year-old entrepreneur open a new radio-controlled car racetrack in Palm Desert.

Jacobsson Engineering Construction, Inc. was recently recognized by the Southern California Contractor’s Association for “Excellence in Accident Prevention” during 2009. There is nothing that we do at the company that makes any sense if we cannot all enjoy the benefits of our hard work with our families and friends. Safety is a team effort. Congratulations to everyone who made Jacobsson Engineering Construction a safe place to come to work in 2009.
In an effort to improve the level of service it provides its customers, Jacobsson has recently sponsored thirteen of its employees for training in the joining of polyethylene pipe by fusion welding. This certification will be valuable as Jacobsson begins work on two major sewer treatment projects during the first quarter of 2010. Way to go, guys!
