My Students

We are requesting funding to support our Robotics Team, 7097. Our goal for the future is to grow the team, set up a workshop, and compete in the 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition.

We have just finished our competition in Myrtle Beach SC and managed to receive the highest rookie seed award and the rookie inspiration award.

We are very proud to have accomplished this in our first year as a team and we are already looking to set ourselves us for next years competition.

My Project

During the competition, we kept having difficulties on our laptop and we are looking to upgrade. We lost two of our matches because of our laptop malfunctioning and losing connection to our robot. In addition, it was incredibly difficult to program the robot on our computer because it kept freezing and crashing. When it did run, it was so slow that it took forever to get anything done.

We are hoping that you will help us get a powerful laptop that can run CAD software, program our robot, and control our robot.

All of my students enjoyed the competition and know that they want to keep participating in robotics for years to come. We know that if we have the proper equipment that we can do even better in the years to follow!
