FIRST® Championship is a four-day robotics championship held annually. Saint Peter Area Robotic’s Team 3018-Nordic Storm qualified to participate in the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Championship as part of the winning alliance at the 2016 Minnesota 10,000 Lakes Regional. The 2016 FRC Championship will take place on April 27th- 30th, 2016 and is held at ‘The Dome at America’s Center’ (formerly ‘Edward Jones Dome’) in St. Louis, MO.
For more info on the Championship (including the ability to watch the livestream of the competition so you can cheer on Nordic Storm), please visit the Championships website at http://www.firstchampionship.org/
Team 3018-Nordic Storm is going to need some help getting there, and that’s where you can help out. Please consider supporting this effort by making a contribution to the Go Fund Me campaign that the team set up. The team needs to raise around $15,000 in a little under 2 weeks to cover the cost of participating in the Championship (registration for the event is $5,000 alone, but we also need to cover travel, housing, and food costs).
For those individuals or businesses who might be considering a larger donation to support this effort and would like to take advantage of tax deductions (the Saint Peter Robotics Association is a registered 501(c)(3) with the IRS), feel free to click on the ‘Donate’ menu in the upper right corner of our webpage, or by following this link.
