The robotics team of PGHS, after ten years of hard work and dedication, won our first ever regional competition, and earned ourselves a ticket to the world championship held in Houston, Texas this year. The best teams from all around the world gather to compete, and is an opportunity our team can not pass up. However, the expenses for this trip are exponential, and we hope you will support our campaign, and help us build the future leaders and innovators who can make the marvels of tomorrow the reality of today.

 

Thank you very much for supporting our team. Every donation you make will bring us a step further in our FIRST mission. Please donate through GoFundMe using the link provided below:
