School: Arizona School for the Arts
Why we need this: This would help us cover the costs associated with the
2018-2019 First Tech Challenge Season, including the cost to register our two teams in competitions, 3 qualifying tournament registration fees for our two teams, robot parts, t-shirts, etc.
ASA High School Robotics is the ultimate adventure in academic application. Combining the excitement of competition with collegiate-level rigor in science and technology, students exercise their minds without the pressure of grades and tests. Structured within a fun framework students are challenged to raise funds, design a "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded scholars. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Most important is the positive impact on the students. Survey indicates more than 88% have a greater interest in doing well in school, and 92% are more interested in attending college. First Tech Challenge encourages gracious professionalism as competitors in one round may be your partner team in another round.
