We're raising money for the
FIRST Robotics Team 2471 Mean Machine
fundraiser led by
FIRST Team Mean Machine 2471
FIRST Team 2471 Mean Machine is based in Camas, WA,
The team builds robots for district, regional, and national competitions. Students and mentors work year round to build and learn together. FIRST (For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology) Robotics enhances general education by providing practical experience in science, technology and business. We are dedicated to hard work, safety, design excellence and gracious professionalism in our community and across the world.
What I'm Raising Money For
Funding comes primarily from corporate and private sponsors who support the team mission to inspire and guide the next generation of scientists, engineers and business leaders.
Running the team costs about $40,000 per year. This includes competition fees, travel expenses, materials to build our robots, shop machinery and maintenance.
Students will experience the hardest fun they've ever had!
