TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students an opportunity to participate in future competitions. They are working very hard to build their robot. With your support, they can advance to the next level.
RamRodz are Building their Future!
Our robotics team is a group of students from several different South Carolina communities.
They range in age from 14 to 17 years and work to build a working robot of roughly 200 pounds that can complete the competitive tasks set by the FIRST organization. With a focus on clear communication and safety, students work together with mentors to create the plans for the robot, design the robot using CAD, machine parts, wire the robot electrically, program the robot to complete the tasks, and ensure that it is well-constructed enough to withstand blows if necessary. They meet with mentors from various businesses and industries. There are sub-teams within our team and students learn the workplace skills and behaviors in an industrial environment. This STEM program provides experience with working in teams along with increasing their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math applications in competitive situations.
Each competition requires resources that build upon each student's skills. Whether it be socially, academically, physically, or economically, these students grow intellectually at every build, and competition. They develop and shoot for excellence; because they believe that taking their learning from the classroom to the real world will make a difference, not only in their future, but in the future of others, and the USA.
Their next competition is to the Regionals, which will give them an opportunity to qualify for the Nationals.
Last year, they had made it, but insufficient funds made it rather difficult for them to attend the national competition. So, this year, with your help and donations, they will have the opportunity to attend and participate with all their might!
