We are Highland Park Senior High's Robotics team, the Automations.   We are a Saint Paul , MN public school.

We are trying to go to our team's first ever trip to the FIRST Robotics Championship held in St Louis, MO
April 27-30, 2016.

The robotics team is focused on encouraging STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based skills for all students and of course we build a robot.   This year in regionals we won the design creativity award for our "sideshot" robot design.   

Your tax deductable donation will be used for our registration fee and travel expenses to send a core team to the competition.   

Thank you for supporting our team!
