Robo-Rattlers Going to 2018 Worlds

Campaign created 9 months ago
The Robo-Rattlers won the Vermont State Championship in December, and now they're headed to the World Finals in Detroit, April 23rd-29th.  The kids have worked hard to design, build and program their competition robot and have created a solution for this year's challenge, HydroDynamics.  The Robo-Rattlers' project solution is a system of internet connected water meters that help families monitor and track the water they use every day.  The data is displayed in charts and graphs on any smartphone or other internet-connected device.  It's like a Fitbit for your faucet!  The Robo-Rattlers believe that when people know more about the water that they use, they can make changes that help them conserve.

The team is 9 kids, aged 9-13, all from the Rutland, Vermont area.  They were pleased to be awarded the REDC Entrepreneurs of the Year Award in October, and have also been honored with a trip to the statehouse in February to show off their innovations at Vermont Student Entrepreneurship Day.  They were the first kids team to pitch a business idea to the Vermont Road Pitch Competition in 2017.

The travel costs to get to Detroit and stay for the entire week are large.  The registration alone for the World Finals is $1000.  Please consider helping the Robo-Rattlers get to Detroit!27489242_15177638360_r.jpeg27489242_15177638660_r.jpeg27489242_15177638860_r.jpeg27489242_15177639080_r.jpeg27489242_15177639270_r.jpeg
