Help FTC Team 13835 attend the World Championship

Donation protected

FIRST Tech Challenge Team #13835 Enigma has competed at the Colorado FTC State Championship and is one of two teams advancing from Colorado to the FIRST World Championship in Houston, Texas.

FIRST is a global non-profit organization for kids from all ages. FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. Within FIRST there are 3 levels of competition, FIRST Lego League, FIRST Tech Challenge, and FIRST Robotics Competition. FIRST Tech Challenge comprises of 2 - 15 student members in middle school and high school. During the season, each team must not only build a robot to perform tasks on the field, but also get involved in their community through outreach, volunteer work, and connecting with STEM professionals. The past two years, FIRST has been unable to host a championship, but it is back on this year!

Team #13835 Enigma is a 4th year team that is completely independent/student ran. We are a four person team who are in 11th and 12th grade. #13835 is based out of Johnstown, Colorado. We chose Enigma because it means puzzling and with the four of us, you never know what is going to happen.

In order to attend this event, Team #13835 Enigma has to get help from their community to find the funding for the Houston. Below is the break down of the team's budget for the trip...

$2,000 - Event Registration
$1,000 - New connection software and hardware for the robot
$3,000 - Team Housing (6 days and 5 nights)
$1,000 - Traveling Expenses 
$1,000 - Meals
$1,000 - Pit displays  (Banners, lights, etc.) and team gear
$10,000 - Amount needed to attend the World Championship

There are 2 different ways to donate to our team...

1) gofundme
2) Writing a check out to FTC Team 13835 Enigma. To get more information about this process, email us at: [email redacted] 

All of the funds that are accumulated for Team #13835 Enigma will be split evenly between 4 team members. 

Thank you to everyone who has supported our team for the past 4 years and we are beyond excited to compete and represent Colorado at the FIRST World championship in April.
