What is FIRST Robotics? It's the “Superbowl of Smarts”. It’s kids working together to dream up, design, and build robots.
Who are The Holy Cows - Team 1538? We are FIRST Robotics World Championship 2013 Chairman's Award Winners and we strive to grow an appreciation for science and technology and to prepare our members for leadership roles in the community.
What I'm Raising Money For:
We are raising money to build 2 robots and attend 2 regional FIRST Robotics Competitions plus the World Championships in St. Louis.
Over a six-week time frame, team members work with professional engineering mentors to design a robot that solves a problem using a Kit of Parts and a standard set of rules. Once we create the robot, our team participate in Competitions that measure the effectiveness of each robot, the power of collaboration, and the determination of our team members.
Why You Should Give:
The Holy Cows are having the hardest fun we’ll ever have and are becoming the next generation of innovators and engineers.
