FIRST comes a team, then comes NASA...


This year the Robotics Club of the High School of Engineering & Science has decided to enter into the FIRST Robotics Competition. In previous years, we did not have enough members, support, or funding. However, this year, things have come together nicely. Our school's Principal is on board, and we have the Naval engineers down at NAVSEA backing us; even the Temple University NSBE chapter, across the street, is willing to help!

To fund our FIRST team, we are applying for a NASA FIRST robotics grant. As the robotics club President, I have  been tasked with writing the essays for the grant. I can't wait. I know it will be challenging, but I am sure it will pay off. Oh, and if you would like to support our team by scrolling down and donating via Paypal. A few bucks can go a long way if everybody pitches in.

Wish us luck :)
