Trailblazer Robotics Team wins Engineering Inspiration Award and District Championship in Mishawaka
Please donate at the link below to help the Trailblazer Robotics Team go to State!
The Trailblazers Robotics Team is a high school robotics team located at Tindley Accelerated School in the Avondale Meadows, a Northeast Side neighborhood of Indianapolis, that competes in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition.
Each year teams receive a new game in January then have six weeks to design and build a robot to play that brand new challenge. The robots can be up to 5ft tall, weigh up to 120lbs, and execute tasks like throwing Frisbees across a basketball court or climbing 12ft tall monkey bars!
The team did great to start the season and won their first event! But even more important than their on-the-field performance, they won the highly coveted Engineering Inspiration Award for their off-the-field community service work and efforts to promote STEM in their community. This award required the students to write multiple essays, create a video highlighting their work, and present to judges in interviews at the event. This prestigious award has qualified them for state, but they need your help to be able to continue the journey!
The entry fee for the state championship is $4000 and hotels & transportation will be ~$3000 for the team, so they are trying to raise $7000 to make this trip a reality. They can’t do it without you friends!
They are asking for you to join the $100 Tindley Trailblazer Turkey Town Tournament T-shirt Team (you will have to ask the students about the name, lol)! With your donation of $100 you will become a member of the $100 TTTTTT-shirt Team! Your name will be placed on the back for their limited edition 2023 FRC State TTTTTT-shirt. This shirt will be worn by their students and mentors at competition as well as many other events throughout the school year!
Please include “FRC6721” in the donation note so we can send you a thank you from the team!
Please Note: You can donate any amount you want, above or below $100. But anyone who donates $100 or above will be eligible to join the $100 TTTTTT-shirt Team (if you would prefer to be anonymous, just mention that in your donation comments). Also, please include “FRC6721” in the donation note so we can send you a thank you from the team!
