My Students

Our team meets daily 2:50-5:30. The goal is to expose students to Engineering, Math, Science and Technology and let them discover the opportunities within these fields. Having these materials, we will be able to accomplish these goals. "Every strike brings us closer to another homerun"~Babe Ruth

The team is made up by many talented students with many different interests.

We have students that work on the design of our robot and put the designs on CAD. We have a mechanical team that takes the designs and bring them to life by constructing the robot. There are some students that do all of the electrical work that connects makes the robot come alive. Our programmers create code that lets the us control all aspects of the robot.

My Project

These requested materials from donorschoose will be used to help design and build an automated robot. For example, the Bosch Metal Bandsaw blades will be used to cut metal for the robot. The Dewalt Drill bit set to construct/connect our robot and the Jorgensen I-Bar Clamp is for assembly. The FIRST robotics program encourages teamwork, creativity, learning and fun. We are providing students the opportunity to learn more about Engineering, Math and Science.

Our mission is to transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.

These materials will be used to help achieve our goal.
