The clock is ticking: Donate now to send JFK kids to robotics ‘world series’

e-Connections Post John F. Kennedy

The Sacramento Unified Education Foundation is hosting a “Countdown Fundraising Campaign” to support John F. Kennedy High School’s robotics team — the only high school team selected to represent the City of Sacramento in the prestigious 2015 FIRST Robotics World Championships in St. Louis this week (April 22- 25).

The FIRST Robotics Championship is considered to be the World Series of robotics competitions.  

As a part of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), SCUSD’s robotics programs provide students with the knowledge, skills and real-world experience necessary for them to be college and career ready. 

Students work very hard all year long to build the robots and to raise the funds necessary to compete in robotics competitions. Donations will help off-set the costs associated with building the robots, competition fees, transportation, food and lodging.
