Team 696, the robotics team at Clark Magnet High School in La Crescenta, CA, is asking for your help on Kickstarter:
We are Team 696, aka The Circuit Breakers, the Robotics Team from Clark Magnet High School in La Crescenta, CA. We are hard-working, enthusiastic students devoted to creating robots for the purpose of spreading awareness of science and technology-based education. Our team comes together to build a new robot each year. In 2013, we plan to build a robot to participate in two FIRST Regional Competitions: one in Long Beach, CA, and the other in San Bernardino, CA.
Our team strives for excellence in all areas; unfortunately, our California school’s budget limits our ability to attain full robotic perfection, and we are always thankful for additional funding to achieve our goals. By supporting us, you will help fund our official 2013 robot, improvements to our engineering lab, and most importantly, the expansion of mentoring and outreach programs within our community.
They have 37 days to go and are almost to their goal of $2,000. The perks range from personalized dog-tags all the way up to being flown out to the robotics competition with The Circuit Breakers.
