We're raising money for the
CV Excellence - Raiderbot Team 955
fundraiser led by
The Crescent Valley Robotics Team, in our 11th year of fielding FIRST competition robots, is a group of 45 CVHS students of varying skills and interests.
We meet after school and on weekends (no class time or credit is given). Adult volunteers from the community mentor us in robot design, creation, and deployment as well as media and business management. We learn new skills as needed.
What I'm Raising Money For
We have engaged students and dedicated mentors, but without financial support, we have no robot. We must raise funds each year to meet our budget for parts and materials, competition fees, and robot travel expenses since these are not covered by the school district. Money is needed to fund the team, and successful fundraising lets us focus our energies on a great robot and team experience.
Why You Should Give
It isn't about the robot! Team members develop their potential, whether as future engineers, tradespeople, or family caregivers. Building the robot and competing revolve around teamwork and community. Students learn that hard work can lead to success, failure is part of the process of trying new things, and everyone can make a contribution, all skills that will be valuable long after high school.
