2019 FRC World Championship fund(Terrorbytes#4561)

$5,326 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 93 people in 1 month
Created April 9, 2019
We, the High School Robotics team TerrorBytes #4561, have qualified to compete at the 2019 FIRST Robotics World Championship in Houston, Texas (April 17 - 20, 2019). The team couldn't be more thrilled to experience this transformative event and to compete with 600 teams from over 60 countries across the world!

We are looking for support to cover our travel, lodging, and food costs during our week long trip to and from Houston. All donations received through this fundraiser will go directly in reducing costs for each student to travel to the event which will allow ALL team members to attend. 

As our students represent multiple socio-economic backgrounds, we feel that many of them will not be able to participate without significant financial assistance. Our dedicated and inspirational team of 45+ students can grow one step further with your help.

This fund will be fully utilized to offset the cost to students towards this trip.  If you would like to make any donations, it will be great if you can make it prior to the event, preferably by April 14th, 2019. If you are unable to make it this time, please share this page with your friends, neighbors, colleagues and family. 

Our team is in its seventh year of operation and was founded at Research Triangle High School in Durham, NC  in late 2012.


We have participated in two district regional competitions this year until qualifying for both the FRC NC State Championship and the FRC World Championship .

Greetings,
The team had an amazing time at the FIRST Championship in Houston, representing Research Triangle Park, and continued to learn many things and had fun competing and talking to other teams from around the country and the world!

We competed in the Carver division (1 of 6 divisions with over 400 total teams). After the qualifying rounds, we ranked 14th out of the 68 teams in Carver! Although we didn't win go far in Carver division, our team helped of our fellow NC teams in the division by cheering them on to go farther than anyone would have thought.
 
Thank you again for spreading and contributing to our GoFundMe, watching our live matches and supporting us for the trip.
