Trumansburg Robotics Team 5254 HYPE has quailifed for the 2018 FIRST Robotics World Championship  in Detroit on April 25-28th. 

The team was the Captain of our Alliance and advanced  all the way to the Finals at the Central NY Regional on March 2-4th at SUNY Polytech.  We also made it all the way to the Finals at the Finger Lakes Regional on March 15-17th at RIT.

We are now working super hard to improve our robot and to raise funds to hit a strict deadline for the event registration fee ($5000) and the travel costs (>$15,000) for the team to get into and to the 2018 FIRST Robotics World Championship  in Detriot.

Robotics Team 5254 HYPE
 consists of high school students and mentors from the community competing in the international FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). Our robotics program gives students a practical outlet to pursue an interest in science, technology, engineering and computer science beyond the classroom. Our robotics program plays a critical role in expanding the STEM and Leadership programs available to the high school students in our rural district.

We Create Opportunities For Students To:
- Build and compete with a robot they design and build
- Work alongside professional engineers
- Learn to use professional hardware and software
- Develop skills such as engineering design, project management, programming, web and multimedia development, business development,
teamwork, communication, and strategic thinking
- Qualify for over $50 million in college scholarships otherwise inaccessible outside of FIRST

Our team is 100% community supported and is built upon a partnership which provides an exchange of resources and talents between local businesses and the community.

This campaign is setup to allow community members, our friends, and family a vehicle to support the bright young minds of Trumansburg Robotics Team 5254 HYPE as we prepare to compete in the 2018 FRIST Robotics World Championship
