We would like to introduce you to the LakeVille High School Robotics Team:
The Falconators-Team #5238
Each year in January the rules to a different game are issued and our team will have six weeks to build a robot with an autonomous (computer controlled) robot operation for 10-15 seconds, two minute operation with a remote control and the ability to end the game with a function such as standing on a platform or hanging from a field structure. The events are covered by NASA TV, which can be viewed on the internet.
This year we will compete at the 2015 FIM District-Kettering University held on March 5-7.
Last year, we competed at the Waterford FIRST Robotics District Competition and the Great Lakes Bay Region FIRST Robotics District Competition in the 2014-Aerial assist game.
We are seeking your support in helping raising $15, 500 to fund our 2015 robot and to find new mentors and teens interested in participating on our team. Your donation will help high school students at LakeVille High School further our skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, learn from professional engineers, build and compete with a robot of their own design, learn and use sophisticated software and hardware, as well as compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments.
Our long term vision is to assist in transforming our community into a leader in STEM education. Our team mission is to design a robot in six weeks that exhibits our schools pride and community commitment to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Each year our team will directly use CADD and programming software to experience the process of developing innovative solutions to the new game challenge by thinking outside of the box to plan, design, build, program, evaluate and then reiterating to make improvements through the engineering design process. Our goals are to assist each other in acquiring the ability to professionally articulate innovative solutions within a fiercely competitive arena.
We look forward to your partnership in:
We are here to win the competition, but we measure our true success by determining whether we have increased support in our community and student involvement in the schools. We currently have five mentors working with our robotic team of ten to build our robot and increase our community involvement in mechanical and chemical engineering.
In return for your generosity we will be announcing and thanking each individual business that donates to us by advertising you as a sponsor on our website and sending you a photo of our team and their robot each year. We would ask that you provide to us with a company information kit including but not limited to a flag, banner, adhesive logo or brochures so that we can display it at the competition to promote your business and thank you for your support.
Should you require any more information please do not hesitate to contact (810) 591-3980 or visit our website at http://lakevillerobotics.weebly.com/
