The Whidbey Island Wildcat Robotics Team from Oak Harbor High School (Team 2980) is where learning, engineering, community service, action and fun take place.  The parent run Whidbey Robotics Booster Club is doing all the fundraising to get our club to the Championships.


This year, our FIRST Robotics team performed exceptionally well at district level events and qualified to compete at the FIRST Pacific Northwest Regional Championship in Portland, April 7-9,2018.  At that event, the team received the Engineering Inspiration  prestigious award at FIRST.

The Whidbey Island Wildcats Robotics Club who was selected to represent the Pacific Northwest in Engineering Inspiration at the world championships. The team presented their special projects like micro-homes, prosthetic fingers, robotic deer neck, prosthetic bicycle arm, and others. The award is so prestigious that NASA will cover their registration! 


 Winning this prestigious award qualifies the team to compete at the FIRST Robotics Championship event in Houston, Texas April 17-22, 2018. The Championship is an international competition event including 800 teams from across the country and around the world.

We are proud of our team and the recognition they have earned for their exceptional dedication and performance. Our budget this year was approximately $20,000. The Whidbey Wildcat Robotics Booster Club raised funds to cover our anticipated expenses. The chance to compete at the Championships in Houston is a tremendous opportunity but is an unexpected expense. We estimate the cost for airfare and hotel room to be approximately $1,000 per team member and plan to have approximately 32 students.

 The Booster Club’s goal is to raise enough funds to support the entire team's attendance at the World Championship. This will include at least four full need-based scholarships. Additional funds we raise will be applied evenly to reduce the cost for each remaining student making the trip. Please consider any donation towards their expenses, or fully sponsor a student for $1000. 

 Thank you so much for your support!

Sincerely,
David Carmen, Rhonda Ince
