Great news: We earned a spot to compete in the 2016 World Robotics Championships in St. Louis! Unfortunately, we can’t go without your help.
On April 1st, the CHCA Beak Squad competed in the Queen City Regional Robotics Tournament against 56 other teams from the U.S., Canada, and Japan. And we came in 2nd place! It was the most exciting moment of our season up to that point. But then it got even better. During the final seconds of the three-day tournament, as we were preparing to leave Xavier’s Cintas Center, the officials announced that our 2nd place finish earned us a berth in the World Championship! Only the top 10% of teams from around the world are invited to participate. It’s an enormous honor and opportunity.
You can imagine the initial shock and excitement that we experienced as we realized that our season was not over. But as those emotions began to settle in, so did the realization that we didn’t have enough money to commit to it. The cost of entering, traveling to, and competing in the World Championship is $15,000 more than we have left in our budget.
That’s where you come in. By donating to this campaign you can help us get to St. Louis.
Thank you for assisting us in building up the next generation of scientists, engineers, and business people and encouraging us to pursue this dream.
Remember if we get to attend the World Championship's this year it will be streamed live online. We will put the link on our website (beaksquad.org), on Facebook, and on Twitter where we will post match by match updates.
