Renee Gillot Zieglmeier  SAINT CLOUD, MN
Team S.A.M.E. 1535Y was formed in the Fall of 2015. The first year robotics team consists of Ava Reisinger, Morgan Zieglmeier and Emma Leighton. Ava & Emma are 6th Graders that attend St. Katharine Drexel and Morgan Zieglmeier is a 5th Grader that attends Westwood Elementary in St. Cloud.

The 2015-2016 VEX Robotics Challenge, Nothing But Net, is a fast paced game in which the object is to score as many points as possible in high and low goals and also with the elevation of robots in the climbing zone.



With the funds raised from this donation page, the team will help pay the hefty registration fee ($850)  to compete in the  VEX Worlds Middle School Championship 2016 .

Any additional funds raised will go towards transportation & lodging for the team members and their families during the 4-day Tournament in Louisville, Kentucky, April 20-23. Any support or donation to the team is sincerely appreciated.

This is a wonderful opportunity for these young students to experience.  The entire team worked so hard all season long and deserve this. Many hours of robot building, collaborating and learning how to drive the bot were done during the week in the evenings after other extracurricular activities and on some weekends to prepare for each tournament.  We are all so proud of their achievements and dedication!

We will be leaving early Tuesday morning, April 19 to head to Louisville, Kentucky for the VEX Robotics Worlds Competition. We are driving together with Jeremy & Ava Reisinger. One of our teammates and her parents left today for Kentucky to do some sight seeing before the competition.

We thank you all for your donations and support, it has helped us greatly with funding the trip, including the competition registration fee, travel expenses like gas and lodging while we are in Kentucky.

I will update you during the Worlds Competition probably on my Facebook account. It will most likely be live streamed like it was last year, I will be sure to share the web link with you all.
