VikingBots - FRC Team 2998


We are the VikingBots of Thomas Jefferson High School - a Richmond Public School robotics team that competes in the FIRST Robotics Competition.  We are a student led organization made up of a diverse group of like minded students looking to become tomorrow's technologists, problem solvers, and innovators!

We Need Your Support!
We desperately need your support to fund our 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition season. With the many needs across the Richmond Public School district, school funding for the VikingBots is typically sparse and in many years unavailable. We depend solely on corporate sponsors, mentors, and community advocates such as yourself, to help us achieve our goals in STEM education.

Your donations will help fund our annual registration fee, buy materials, tools, and equipment for our lab room, and help feed us during our long nights of researching, coding, and building our robot.

Learn More About the FIRST Robotics Competition
The FIRST Robotics Competition program helps inspire students to become STEM leaders and innovators by applying STEM in a way that is fun and engaging. Students learn and apply STEM concepts in a team environment, and collaborate to build a robot that competes with and against other teams across the region and nation.
