North Edgecombe High School Robotics Team

$2,090 of $3,600 goal

Raised by 34 people in 2 months
This is the start up year for our local high school, North Edgecombe's robotics team (NEHS Royal Tech Warriors).  The twelve member team is comprised of very bright imaginative freshman and sophomores who are eager for the opportunity to compete against their more affluent peers from across the state of North Carolina.  Since October 2018, they have been working several times a week with local volunteer industry mentors to learn about building, creating and marketing their own robot which they are completing and hope to be able to take and compete with in two regional events.  

The team has applied for and received several grants from First Robotics in order to pay registration fees but these do not cover travel expenses for the team.  They hope to  participate in two First Robotics competitions in March 2019 and are seeking assistance with travel expenses.  These competitions are in Holly Springs and Pembroke NC.  Both events require bus travel and two hotel night stays.

North Edgecombe High is a very small rural public school situated in a high poverty community.  Every student on campus receives free breakfast and lunches due to the very low socioeconomics of Edgecombe County.   They could really use your support, without it, they will not be able to attend and compete.  No gift is too small and all are tax deductible. 

Thank you in advance for your time, consideration and support of the NEHS Royal Tech Warriors!

This page is led and supported by Shanell Knight and Christine Exum Smith.
