The Columbus Robotics Alliance offers students the experience to apply what they have learned in science, technology, engineering, and math classes to real problems. This experience is made possible by the parents of the Booster Club and the volunteer mentors from our community.

The Boosters Club will:
  • provide technical and non-engineering mentors where possible
  • manage the Destination Einstein program
  • coordinate the Chairman Award effort to spread the FIRST message to the community
  • organize transportation to competitions and scimmages
  • help find sponsors for the entree fees and robotics costs
  • organize the meeting support to include snacks and occasional meals
  • fund raise
  • collect funds for travel, T-shirts, and other non-robotics costs

FUNDS NEEDED: $103,000
FUNDS RAISED: $8,000
