Thank you for visiting the Xbots 3:16 GoFundMe Page.
This little homeschool robotics team has had an amazing first season of VEX IQ Robotics. After Logan had the honor of being on an amazing VEX Team last season his brother Ethan wanted to join in on the fun and XBots 3:16 Team#99777X was formed. We quickly found two fellow homeschooled boys (Ethan "Etho" and Ryan) to join our team. This season the XBots have attended 4 league matches, 3 tournaments, and the Arizona VEX IQ Elementary State Championships; taking home a whopping 10 trophies! We are so proud of all their hard work!

Our team received the Robot Skills Championship Award at nearly every tournament they attended. Their skills score consists of two parts; driving skills and autonomous programming. Logan spent days programming the robot and it paid off big time! At the Arizona State Championship they received a special award called the Think Award. The judges grilled Logan with questions on the program, to make sure he actually coded the autonomous program. Later he helped teach his teammates about the coding and they all helped with some of the finishing touches on the code. All four boys worked hard this season and have grown in so many ways.
Currently the Xbots are 17th in the WORLD Skills Standings out of around 3,194 elementary teams! That is HUGE! We're also 10th in the US and 1st in Arizona for our skills rank. If you look at the teams above us they're all tech schools, robotics schools, academies etc; then our little brand new to VEX (Minus Logan) homeschool team. All that being said, our underdog team has been invited to represent Arizona and the United States in the VEX IQ Elementary World Championships in Louisville, Kentucky.
That is where you come in, we need your help. We need your prayers over the team for safe travels, to do their best, and to continue learning amazing things through the VEX program. We also have some money to raise! We need to raise money to get to Vex Worlds and for our 2[phone redacted] season. If you are able to partner with us financially the Xbots would greatly appreciate it!
