We are FRC Team 2073, EagleForce, a robotics team established in 2007 at Pleasant Grove High School in Elk Grove, CA. We recently qualified to compete at the 2019 FIRST World Championships in Houston, Texas from April 17-20. To help the team offset travel expenses (airfare, lodging and food) for our team of 25 students and mentors, we are reaching out to our community for help.

We qualified for the World Championships by not only becoming Finalists at the 2019 Monterey Bay Regional from March 22-24, but also earning the coveted Regional Engineering Inspiration Award there as well. This award “celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s school and community” - FIRSTinspires.org . We were recognized for our team’s outreach efforts and commitment to increasing the accessibility of STEM education to youth in our local area.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our team consists of high school students who learn to use industrial-grade machinery (lathes, mills, CNC mills, etc.) and CADD programs (Inventor, Fusion, SolidWorks), electrical wiring, and various programming languages through the process of building robots. Our students then refine their acquired skill sets at regional competitions such as the 2019 Monterey Bay and Aerospace Valley Regionals. These hands-on learning experiences prepare our students for their future, post-secondary careers academically and professionally.


The World Championships brings together regional winners from all over the world to compete, learn, and inspire each other, giving students unforgettable experiences as they compete alongside and against the best teams from around the world. Despite the language barrier, we compete and collaborate with other teams in randomly assigned alliances in our matches. By enabling our team to go to the World Championships, you are also enabling our students to apply their skills in a competitive, educational field surrounded by other bright minds from around the world, giving them the opportunity to put their skills to the test.

The mission of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
