Briana, Ellie and Griffin are going to the VEX IQ Robotics World Championship!

Briana, Ellie and Griffin (aka Team Magneto - 4th graders at Alpine Elementary in Longmont, CO) received the Excellence Award at the Colorado State VEX IQ Robotics tournment on March 7th.  This award is given to the team that exemplifies overall excellence in the following categories: Teamwork Challenge, Robot Skills Challenge, Programming Skills Challenge & STEM Research Project.  Find out more information about VEX IQ at 

This award has qualified them to represent their school and the State of Colorado at the VEX IQ Robotics World Championship April 15-18th in Louisville, KY

Team Magneto has worked and played hard this season.  They have documented their trials and tribulations with daily notes & sketches in their engineering notebook, researched & consulted with teachers / mentors, competed in 4 tournaments and have had a lot of fun this season.  To say they're excited about the World Championship would be an understatement!

We need your help to get there!
 Please consider a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to help them get to Kentucky and compete in this exciting Science Technology Engineering & Math (STEM) program.  Your donation will go directly to supporting student & chaperone travel and event expenses.  

All donors will be listed on event t-shirts and team banner* and any business that donates over $100, we'll add their logo.  The kids will wear the t-shirts and the banner will be displayed in the team's pit area at the World Championship.  

This is a great opportunity for family, friends and community to support Science, Technology, Engineering & Math as well as create memories that will last a lifetime for these three students.

If you'd like to make a tax deductible donation, please do not submit your donation via Go Fund Me.  Please contact us and we'll send you details regarding how to make a tax donation directly to Alpine Elementary.

Online donations are due Friday, April 10th. Direct donations, accepted at the school, are due by Monday, April 13th.

This is the VEX IQ Challenge game.
