ASW Robotics to World Comp in MI?
The American School of Warsaw robotics club has won the Inspire award in the recent CEESA competition in Bucharest. This means that they were the sole team invited to represent CEESA and ASW at the FTC World Championship in Detroit Michigan. The win is unprecedented at ASW and is not part of the activities budget. So, we are reaching out to the community for sponsors and donations to send four of the 20 plus robotics club members to bring our robot to compete in Detroit. We need to reach our goal by April 24th.
to lock in prices for hotel and flights. We appreciate any donation and would be happy to advertise any sponser on our clothes or robot. Thank you for your help.
This gofundme account was created by coaches Stephen Miele and Stephen Sidaway. All proceeds go directly to ASW Foundation INC, where they will then be allocated to the expenses of traveling and competing in the FTC world championship robotics tournament in Detroit MI.
The ASW robotics team returns from the FTC World Championship in Detroit where the world was most definitely their classroom. Out of 134 competing teams from all over the world, our team ended up 55th in their division. Bouncing back after numerous challenges, each of the member of the team pulled together and never gave up. The students had examples and were helped by many teams from all over the globe. Friends were made and collaborations happened on many levels. Tips and technology that were shared helped us to get on our feet. Felix Morenc stepped up and became an FTC student ambassador from our team. Shevy Gupts and Jack Kolenbrander spearheaded efforts for the tasks in the Fed Ex challenges. Juwon Park and Max Turner tirelessly coded and tweaked the mechanics of the robot during every minute of the pit time. On a terrific side note, the boys had accommodations in the center between the home stadiums of the Detroit Lions, Tigers, Pistons, and Redwings. The team comes back in good spirits, more skilled, more knowledgeable, and eager to share and continue to develop the robotics program at the American School of Warsaw. Thank you everyone for making it possible!!! Thank you's will be sent out shortly and this account will be closed. Thank you again!!!
