Our young team's success can be largely attributed to our dedication to collaborating to innovate and improve our robot. Every member belongs to a sub-team where we learn technical skills in engineering fields (such as programming, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering). We learn how to harness our individual skills and ideas in an environment that requires collaboration while fostering individuality and self-improvement. To work within a sub-team is not simply to combine all our separate and individual efforts, but to learn from, support, and teach each other.
Running a team such as ours has inherent and unavoidable costs, from providing snacks and dinners for the hungry teens to competition registration fees. As the cost of building the robot and paying competition registration fees will be covered by grants from Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Raytheon, Comdev, and Da Vinci Schools, (among other sponsors) the money raised by this fundraiser will go towards three main necessities: --ensuring that every team member goes to both competitions, regardless of ability to pay.--feeding hungry teens at 50 team meetings and practices that go past dinner or lunch.--team spirit items and activities, such as uniforms, strategic planning events, awards banquet, and “swag” to hand out to other teams during competitions (an important factor in some team awards)
FIRST robotics inspires youth and adults alike in the areas of STEM. There is not another program like it. The amount of work and dedication required is life-changing and your donation will make sure that ALL of our students can afford to fully take part.Learn more about us at:https://www.facebook.com/FrcTeam4201TheVitruvianBotshttp://vitruvianteam4201.weebly.com/ www.youtube.com/channel/UCH0bRF8xOOJxtD6JOYX7TSQAnd learn about FIRST Robotics at:http://www.usfirst.org/aboutus/vision
