ASQ Charleston to Sponsor Rohming Robots
Rohming Robots is a 4-H project club focused on the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) competition. They have 11 team members from the 8th-12th grade, who happen to all be homeschool students. They love learning about science and math, and FIRST robotics gives them an amazing opportunity to learn more and demonstrate their knowledge. FTC teams build robots with metal pieces and use sensors and Android devices to program. They are required to keep an engineering notebook to document discoveries.
ASQ Charleston has pledged to match any donations made by ASQ Members up to $250 towards helping this group compete in the 2016-2017 season.
Please read this letter from Gray Stewart, Rohming Robots’ Outreach Division Leader for more information about this organization. You may also review their Business Plan to learn about their organization, past accomplishments, and future vision. You may visit their website for more information as well.
If you choose to make a donation, please send a check payable to “Rohming Robots” to our Treasurer, who will then collect all donations and submit them to Rohming Robots along with the matching check from ASQ Charleston (up to $250). Our deadline to provide our contribution to Rohming Robots is October 25 2016.
