Help Grow Robotics in the RGV

$350 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 17 months
Students in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV), Texas have not had a quality science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) offering before FIRST RGV, INC. started offering a quality robotics program here approximately 3 years ago. Over this time, we have inspired more than 3,800 students in designing / building, programming / coding and then participating in a "coopertitive" robotics competition.  

This past year, we had or first robotics team achieve the honor of competing at the FIRST World Championship for which a RGV team is ranked in the top 50 "Best robots in the world".  We know that if we raise money to have more events and to help support teams with grants (help with the costs of robotics parts, team supplies, travel expenses to state/national events and provide them with more local training) we can continue to expand this program in the poorest county per capita in Texas. (Hidalgo, Cameron, Starr and Willacy counties)  
to promote inclusion, diversity and equity in our programs.
Our first year, we had 14 teams, our second year we had more than 68 teams and in 2017, we have more than 300+ teams program wide.  We need your help to make sure we can expand this program for the more than 105,000 students in the Rio Grande Valley that consists 97% of Title 1 (free lunch) and is an economically disadvantaged community. 

All donations are restricted to only serve the Rio Grande Valley. Our entire annual budget to proved these services is 22,000. Your help will allow us to expand the programs to more students. Our volunteers are ready to do more so now we just need your help!
