We’re headed to the FTC World Championship!
At the South Super Regional Championship we were chosen by Team Mechanical Marauders as an alliance partner for the semi-finals, we were a finalist for the Promote Award, and we received the 2nd Place Think Award — this accomplishment earned us a place at the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) World Championship in St. Louis, MO, April 27 – 30, 2016.
We have much to do to prep for competition with teams from around the world. We will need to upgrade our pit and our robot; purchase spare parts (both mechanical and control hardware); and help fund the enormous travel and lodging expenses incurred by our team members.
We are running a GoFundMe campaign to help cover some of these costs. Please give, if you are able. Every donation matters, both in terms of helping with our funding and as a means of encouraging our team of hard working students with the feeling of community support. Please widely share our campaign via email and social media.
Thanks for participating in our amazing journey to the FIRST Tech Challenge World Championship!
