We're raising money for the
FTC Team 25 Rock n' Roll Robots
fundraiser led by
We are a Girl Scout FIRST Tech Challenge high school robotics team from Pasadena, CA. This is our 6th year competing in the FTC competition, but over the years we have gone to the World Championships three times, won many prestigious awards, and many of our graduated girls have decided to major in mechanical and electrical engineering.
What I'm Raising Money For
Your support will be helping the Rock n' Roll Robots (an all Girl Scout high school robotics team) to buy tools/parts, build a fully functional robot, and pay for competition fees plus traveling costs for the 2012-2013 FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) season. Our current goal is to raise the funds for our April 2013 trip to the FTC World Championship event in St. Louis, Missouri.
Why You Should Give
Our goal is to show girls that they do things that are mostly men-dominated like:
- System Design: understanding requirements, design considerations
- Electrical engineering: circuits, wiring
- Computer programming: RobotC
- Mechanical engineering: motors, gears, servos, hardware
- System integration: teamwork, system testing
- Prototyping: CAD, manufacturing
- Shop Skills: machine tools, dremels
