Get excited! Dunwoody High School’s new FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) team has made its debut and is doing it in a big way. 

Dunwoody WildCat 5e is currently ranked first in Georgia, first in the nation, and seventh in the world out of more than three thousand teams. At the two competitions we have attended so far, we have finished third and fifth, and received multiple awards. These achievements are outstanding for any team, but even more so for a rookie team that only has the future to look forward to.  And we need your help to continue our exciting journey.

This success and the current FRC rankings have put us in a comfortable position to advance to the state championship, which takes place April 5 through 8 in Athens, Georgia. In order to attend state, WildCat 5e needs to raise $12,000, which will be funded primarily through sponsorships and donations. Should we then advance to the world championships in Houston, Texas, we will need an additional $18,000. This money will be allocated to improve our robot, finance the trips, and fund outreach projects and robots in future seasons. 

After the competition season, WildCat 5e plans to focus on outreach, work to teach STEM values to the youth of the community, and network with local organizations seeking mentors to help them continue to learn and grow. 

Dunwoody WildCat 5e has worked extremely hard to get to the position we are in now, and the future is bright for us. We hope you are willing to contribute to our cause. 

Thank you for considering sponsoring us! You can contact us at Hello@WildCat5e if you have any questions.

Our team performed very well at the Gainesville and Dalton qualifiers. As of me writing this post our team is ranked first in the nation and second in the world in ranking points. We went to the playoffs in both events and finished our alliance finished in second and third at Gainesville and Dalton respectively. So I'd like to give a big thank you to all of our donors and sponsors for supporting us. However our chances of going to state are very high and we will need some more money to pay for trip expenses. Every dollar counts so keep donating and thanks again to all who have supported us.
