We're raising money for the
FRC Team 980
fundraiser led by
FIRST Robotics Competition Team 980 ThunderBots, a 501(c)(3) charity, inspires high school students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) fields. We build competitive robots, immersing our students in a hands-on, six-week product development cycle, followed by intense competition events.
What I'm Raising Money For
Funds raised by our "Full STEAM ahead to Kickoff" Challenge will be used to purchase parts, materials, and supplies for building our robot. Our students are work harding to exceed our $5,000 kickoff goal!
Why You Should Give
In a period when highly-skilled technical staff is in high-demand, few programs inspire high school students to choose high-tech career paths like FIRST. Our team members learn the critical life-skills allowing them to succeed in technical careers. In addition, FIRST Robotics Competition students are eligible for millions of dollars in scholarships to leading colleges and universities.
