Who are we?
We are Team OTTO 1746. We aren't your typical high school robotics team; we are so much more than that. With the world around us beginning to revolve around technology, the time has come where the next generation has to step up to the plate. As a part of the international FIRST robotics program (http://www.firstinspires.org), we aren't just building a robot. We’re learning skills, obtaining experiences, helping others, and preparing ourselves for the future. Oh, and of course, having tons of fun in the process!
2022 has been a great year so far for Team OTTO 1746, we finished this year’s frc competition as semifinalists at the state championship. Also at the State Championship, our mentor Kellen Hill was given the Woodie Flower Finalist award and was able to go to the world championship. This was only possible because of Camryn Aguilar, a graduated senior, who wrote an amazing essay to portray Kellen’s contribution to the team. However, none of these successes would have been possible without our parents and our sponsors.
However, creating a robot capable of taking on competitors does not come without its costs. Travel costs and entrance fees for the competitions alone will cost each family around $125. These events are experiences that students will remember for the rest of their lives. They allow students to make connections with multiple different teams. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to help reduce the burden on families so that the price is not as much of a hindrance. This money will go towards paying the travel costs for the families. Rather than paying such a large sum, we are hoping to bring the cost per family. But we cannot do this without your support!
