Houston: Arlington Neobots are go

ARLINGTON – The Arlington High School Neobots FIRST Robotics Team 2903 is sending a delegation to participate at the FIRST World Championship Event in Houston, Texas, April 19-22. Sixteen high school students, their mentors and their robot will compete against student teams from 39 countries. But they need help financing travel and registration fees.

The Neobots are working to raise funds to send a dozen team members to Houston, but they don’t have much time.

If you would like to contribute online go to the Arlington School District webpage at www.asd.wednet.edu, then click on the Online Payments section in Quick Links.

Lead mentor Mark Ehrhardt estimates that each student’s roundtrip airfare will be $450-$500.

Students have already made money to pay for a place to stay.

“Our club uses the funds that students raise by running a summer robotics camp to pay for the students’ hotel rooms,” Ehrhardt said.

Along with the competition, they will also visit Scholarship Row, learn about new tech innovations and connect with students worldwide, Ehrhardt said.
