My students need a Connector Kit, a Band Saw, and a Tap and Die Set to be more competitive at the robotics competitions. Funding has been cut the past few years to the point now that we no longer have tools to use.
AFSA students come from all over the Twin Cities to explore learning opportunities with an Agricultural focus. Students have a variety of backgrounds, leading to a unique diversity in our school. Students are 38% low socio-economic background, 30% ethnically diverse, and 30% special needs.
Our learners are inquisitive and form a tight-knit community to develop life-long learning skills.
AFSA strives to provide hands-on learning experiences, but funding has been lowered for charter schools, and our students are feeling the impact. I am trying to prevent the removal of our robotics program.
AFSA offers Robotics to all students at low cost, using donations for supplies, coaching, and registration. Students will use the connector kit to build the robot brain, tap and die kit to connect pieces of the robot together, and other tools to aid in the building process.
We believe every student deserves the chance to explore their passions.
With your help, our students can do just that AND have the competitive edge to accomplish their goals.
By working with the team, students gain valuable job skills, teamwork skills, and have a higher understanding of engineering sciences. This helps students determine goals for the future, make post-secondary plans, and apply their knowledge in internships or job opportunities in the community.
