Send FCMS Robotics to Worlds

Florence Chapel Middle School is in its second year for Vex Robotics. The robotics program has grown a lot. Last year they had one robotic team and this year they have three teams. Two of the teams have been very successful this year. Both teams have been invited to compete at the State Championship in Irmo, SC (March 10, 2018) and they are the only two Upstate South Carolina teams going to the Create U.S. Open Robotics Championship in Council Bluffs, Iowa (April 5 - 7, 2018).  Our teams need your support to get them to these competitions. Any size donation will help.

Team 42748A, Cougar Crushers, has four team members, Dawson, Kai, Elliot and Josh. They have won two Tournament Championships and an Excellence award. They have placed 5th and 6th at high school competitions. They are currently ranked 6th in Skills in South Carolina.

Team 42748B, Invictus, has five team members, Jean-Luc, Nathan, Brendan, Rohan and Ben. They have won one Tournament Championship and a Judges award. They have placed 2nd at a high school competition. At this competition their team alliance was made up of two middle schools and one high school going against three high school teams in the final match. It was an amazing match to watch! They are currently ranked 3rd for Skills in South Carolina.

These two teams are heading to the State Championship in Irmo, SC and the Create U.S. Open Robotics Championship in Council Bluffs, Iowa where only 98 other middle school teams worldwide will compete and they need your help to get there. We are asking for any donation to help pay for travel, lodging, materials and related expenses for our teams.

These teams have put in many hours after school several days a week and on their own time at home on weekdays and weekends working on their robots. They have built, programed and continue to test their robots. They are helpful at competitions when other teams are in need. They are a great group of kids and are excited about this amazing opportunity.

On behalf of Team 42748A/Cougar Crushers and Team 42748B/Invictus, we thank you for your support! Best Wishes and Please Donate and Share!
