Send Team 5059 to FRC Championship

Globe High School's Robotics Club, "TigeRobotics," has put significant work into building our robot to compete in this year's FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) "Recycle Rush."  We won the  AZ West regional and now have the opportunity to compete at the Championship in St. Louis.

Over the past year, the team has invested heavily in infrastructure, tools, parts and materials. Fortunately, most purchases will last for years and will help to ensure the continued and sustainable operation of TigeRobotics, Team 5059. Building our lab from scratch and attending the FRC championship likely makes this year the most demanding year for our budget.

We are graciously asking for your help in supporting TigeRobotics' trip to St. Louis. We need to transport and lodge 12 students, one coach and three mentors. We hope to raise enough money for the flights as soon as possible so we can get our tickets before rates get out of hand. We're going to do our best to spend as little as possible. If we fail to raise enough to send the entire team, we'll unfortunately have to limit who can attend. If we raise above what is required, the excess will be used to support the team throughout this year and into next year’s competition.

FIRST Robotics is actually less about robotics and more about empowerment, problem solving and personal development through real world application of STEM.
