We're students of the Math and Science Academy, and members of The Fighting Calculators, a FIRST Robotics Competition Team. We just completed our pre-season which included whole team training on CAD, cleaning the shop, learning project management software, and developing a recruitment and fundraising plan. We are now officially launching our 2023-24 season which concludes with two state-wide competitions.
Our team is seeking sponsorship from your company, organization or familiy in the form of funding or in-kind contributions (tools, materials, or services). Your support helps the following:
➢ Connect: Women and BIPOC Students to engineering and science pathways
○ Only 4.7% of professional software developers are women, while ~40% of our
team members are women or gender minorities
○ Only 29% of engineering workers are BIPOC, while ~50% of our team is BIPOC
➢ Develop: Teaching essential skills such as programming, CAD, project management, marketing, and engineering or core to our team.
○ Only 20% of high-school students are prepared for college-level
➢ Collaborate for real world solutions
In short, we build a robot from scratch in six weeks to compete regionally and learn a lot of science, tech, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and team work skills and seek your help and support.
Please consider helping us raise $5,000. Your support goes to:
➢ Robot and practice field build
Our success and existence are not possible without support from our community.To
