About this Campaign

Hello, all!

WHO WE ARE: We are the Park Hill High School FIRST Robotics team; team 5013, the Trobots! We're about 40 hardworking high school students with a passion for STEM. We work together to build a robot for a game, the nature of which changes each year. We then travel to compete with other high school robotics teams to see whose robot best meets the challenge.

WHAT WE DO: We build students not just robots. Our students are learning career soft skills such as communication and grant writing while working on hard skills such as mechanical work, circuit building, and programming. We also have a Trobot mentor program where we send high school students into the elementary and middle school robotics programs to mentor the next generation! We are good at the robots too though, at our latest competition, we upset a higher-seeded alliance and WON IT ALL! As victors of the Iowa Regional, we competed at the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP in Houston, Texas!

WHY WE NEED YOU: We have no barrier or entry fee to join the club; all of our materials and travel are paid for through fundraising and donations. There are numerous costs associated with building the robot (robot parts, tools, access to technology) and traveling to compete (busing fees, hotel accommodations, enough food for a team of hungry teenagers). We also need around $300 for EVERY elementary team we help start! That's up to 10 young bright minds that we could reaching - if we had your help!!!

Please, help us build a dynasty in Park Hill. Help us create a generation of future engineers, scientists, doctors, and more that have grown up locally and that want to give back to the town that supported them. Who knows what these students might do for YOU one day?

  • Thank you for taking the time to read our fundraiser information. ANY donation helps us meet our goals and the needs of our students!
