When it was time to sign up for extracurricular activities, we noticed that our school didn't have a robotics club. The STEM club had been shut down last year, and there was no place for students who wanted to explore science, programming, and engineering to meet and further develop their interests. We decided that we had to change this. After campaigning across the school and speaking with the faculty, we achieved our goal and founded the VikingBots.
Our goal is to join the FIRST Robotics Competition. FIRST Robotics is a well respected organization that holds annual competitions where students from schools across the world build a robot for a competition. Given the academic interests of our members, it would be amazing for us to have this opportunity to learn and grow our skills.
The cost of materials and entry fees for the competition is $6,000. Through grants and fundraising, we have raised $5,000. We need your help to get the additional 1,000!
Please help us to accomplish our dream of competing in this incredible competition!
We have thirty days to raise the rest of the money we need so if there's anything you can donate, it will help greatly.
