Team 2539 - The Krypton Cougars, a FIRST Robotics Competition Team made up of high school students from the Palmyra / Hershey, PA area has qualified for the FIRST Robotics World Championship in Detroit from April 23 - 28.  The team of 25 students has been working hard since the beginning of January to design, build, and program our robot.  At our first competition, Team 2539 ranked #1 and won the Innovation in Control Award.  The results of our first competition earned us a spot at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship.  At our second competition, Team 2539 was once again ranked #1 - a feat that seldom ever happens.  This resulted in Team 2539 being ranked #8 out of 128 teams in the Mid-Atlantic Region.  At the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships, Team 2539 persevered to earn a spot at the 2019 FIRST Robotics World Championship where teams from around the world will compete to see who is the best.  This is the first time in 12 years that Team 2539 has qualified for the World Championship.

The registration cost for all members of Team 2539 to attend the World Championship is $5,000.  In addition, we have cost for renting a trailer in order to take our robot, tools, and other necessary equipment needed for the competition.  We also must rent two passenger vans in order to transport all team members.  And we have 6 days and 5 nights of lodging and food in Detroit.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our local high school students which is why we are asking you to make a generous donation to support STEM education in our community.

FIRST Robotics gives students in our community the chance to not only learn about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) but also to grow into the leaders of tomorrow by learning teamwork, communication, and leadership skills.  FIRST Robotics is life changing for so many of our students who never dreamed that they would have the opportunity to become world leading engineers and scientists.  Attending FIRST Robotics World Championships is the culmination of our student's hard work and their well deserved reward for the ultimate success they have enjoyed this year.  Please keep their learning going by donating to make attending the FIRST Robotics World Championship a reality.

Thank You!
