Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 25

The Boca Ciega Robotics Team was able to finish the season better than it ever has. There were multiple moments where our team was in the top three ranking during competition. At the end of the season we won the FIRST Tech Challenge Motivate Award, a prize that not every team gets the honor of having. Part of the reason for this is that the kids are getting better year after year, but that is not the only reason. One of our only constraints were lifted this year: funding. Thanks to Jabil, we did not have to worry about paying for any supplies that we needed this year. We had enough money to freely try out all of our ideas and projects.

Original Grant Overview

Goal

To successfully design, build, code, and maintain a FIRST robotics competition robot. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students participate in all aspects of the engineering of a robot to compete in FIRST robotics competitions against other Pinellas County High Schools. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students on the Robotics team have a higher chance of choosing higher Math and Science classes. Involvement is crucial for under represented groups of students to have more opportunity to participate in STEM education. Students involved in FIRST are 2.6 times more likely to choose Engineering as a freshman in college. Over 75% of FIRST participants are in a STEM field as a student or a professional. They will gain important job skills including: communication, problem solving, time management, and conflict resolution. 

 

Describe the Students

We are a Title 1 School with a large population of students with economic difficulties. Our team is a very diverse group representative of many underrepresented groups in the field of Engineering.  

 

Budget Narrative

There are only a few constraints that we face in robotics: time, talent, and resources. These resources would allow our team to obtain necessary parts to assist with our build this season. This is our third year in FIRST robotics. Most of the grant opportunities are understandably for first year teams. We rely on grants (like this one) to supplement our fund raising efforts. We would love to add your company/organization to our list of sponsors and look forward to sharing our successes with you.
