Help Us Make History
For the first time in the organization’s history, YouthLink’s LEGO robotics team, Here Comes the BOOM, has qualified for the FIRST LEGO League World Championship. The team is headed to Houston, Texas to compete against the top 108 of the world’s 40,000 teams!
Here Comes the BOOM
On February 1st, Here Comes the BOOM won the FIRST LEGO League State Championship at Athens Academy by scoring in the top tier of all four scoring categories; robot design, robot performance, how well their team exemplified FIRST Core Values, and innovative team project - ZAPP, a carbon footprint reduction tool.
We are doing something that none of our students have done - compete in a World Championship. Our students work hard, strive to be upstanding citizens, and THEY ARE WINNERS!!! Our team member, Issac says it best - “I love robots and the FIRST LEGO League World Festival is a dream come true!”
How Can You Help?
Within the next two months, our goal is to raise $10,000. Your donation will be used to cover the cost of registration, travel, lodging, food, and competition materials for our 9-member team. It is through the continued support from family, friends, community, and businesses that our team will be able to compete!
