Rowan, Eileen, Will, Rocky, Nicholas and Andy, better known as The Dream Team” are a spectacular group of sixth and seventh graders, who formed a FIRST LEGO® League (FLL) team together in back in elementary school.  Of the 345 teams in all of South Carolina, they came out on top!  Now they have been invited to participate in the WORLD FESTIVAL held in St. Louis on April 23rd -26th, 2014. 

FLL is an international robotics program in partnership with LEGO®. Teams of elementary and middle-school aged students build and program robots to perform missions. They also participate in a Research Project, with the goal of helping solve real world problems.  This year The Dream Team developed a sensor that detects dangerous conditions in remote locations.   

This Greenville area team has a built one of the smallest, simplest robots, and still accomplished one of the very best scores in the robot game. They stood out in all areas of the SC State Tournament, but were especially outstanding in the Core Values section. Winning the SC State Championship has given them a place at the World Festival, where they will be competing against teams from all over the world. Around 35,000 people are expected to walk past their booth in St Louis!!!

Until now, the team has been entirely funded by the families of the members. They have purchased their own entry fees, uniforms, robots, electrical equipment, as well other expenses.

The estimated costs for the competition are expected to be between $12,000 and $15,000. They need further help in order to compete at the World Festival. 

Please consider giving what you can to help this team incur the cost of this competition. Your generous donation will be greatly appreciated by six adorable kiddos! 

On behalf of FIRST LEGO® League, Rowan, Eileen, Will, Rocky, Nicholas, Andy and their encouraging parents, we appreciate your consideration of support for this team.

The competition is quickly approaching, so please donate soon.
