XCats is a 100% volunteer effort, so every cent of your dollars go to support the team. Your generosity will allow us to continue inspiring our youth so they can lead a better tomorrow for all of us.
What do we do? Each year our students work with volunteer teachers, engineers and industry professionals to design a robot that will compete in a fun and action packed challenge. At the end of the six week build season, the robot is packed away and taken to one of several competitions around the world to compete with and against other FIRST robots.
The X-Cats are one of the original teams in FIRST and a member of its Hall of Fame. They are the only team to win FIRST’s most prestigious award,the Chairman’s award, twice. Please help us attend the Championships, in St. Louis, so our kids can see first hand the importance of what they have accomplished and meet like-minded students from around the world.
FIRST's mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, and spark innovation. Being on a FIRST team fosters important life skills including self-confidence, communication, teamwork, and leadership.
