The Charles Finney Robotics Team particpates in F.I.R.S.T. http://www.usfirst.org/robotics/
The FIRST Robotics Competition is an exciting, multinational competition that teams professionals and young people to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way.
Each School must raise the money to build their robot, cover Enterance Feesand travel expenses for the Regional and National competition. We are a small school of 160 students in the entire High School located in Rochester, NY.
Many of the large schools have major sponsors who donate huge $$. Finney has a small number of dedicated sponsors. However combined, we still fall short of covering the costs of the 1st regional. Our Team consists of 8 students and mentors.
In our rookie year, we won our regional event and placed well year in the National Competition.
We are looking to purchase tools for the robotics program as well as funding for the National Competition.
