Support Team Komodo (First Robotics)

Tax deductible
Team Komodo (FRC Team 4293), which operates under the non-profit Young Engineers Association (YEA). YEA is a 501(c)3 Colorado non-profit organization that allows South Metro Area youth to gain the experiences and skills necessary to design, build, program, and test a robot within a strict time period through the international FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC). Team Komodo is composed of high school-aged students from various schools and homeschool programs spread out across the South Denver Suburbs. Through YEA and FRC, these students make executive, technical, financial, strategic, and operational decisions while guided by mentors who work in similar fields. This gives them practical experience as they prepare for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

What makes Team Komodo unique in comparison to other FRC teams is its partnership
with a locally owned machine shop. This arrangement allows students to gain hands-on experience designing, fabricating, assembling, and testing robots in state-of-the-art machine shop facilities while also working with mentors from the aerospace, network, business, and manufacturing sectors. Additionally, we operate independently from a local high school, so we rely solely on generous donations and grants to fund our team.

On behalf of all the members and mentors of Team Komodo, we hope that you will consider a donation to support this pursuit of excellence and help continue to provide this important opportunity for tomorrow’s engineers, scientists, and business professionals.
