Think About The Possibilities

RoboThinkers is the name of Young Thinkers of York’s FIRST Lego League team, and we need your support! RoboThinkers is the only competitive FLL robotic team in the City of York that is open to all eligible students. Young Thinkers of York offers this program to York students for free. According to a recent report, our educational STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) program serves a population in which 86-96% of the York City student base lives in poverty. RoboThinkers provides our at-risk youth with STEM exposure and new experiences that can present them with an interest to enter into a STEM related career that can help curve the generational poverty cycle we see happening in our city. Help us connect our York students with a brighter future and hope.

Right now, RoboThinkers need additional resources so that we can be on the same competitive level as the other regional teams. With the gracious help from our community, we will be able to proudly represent the City of York.

Our program is much more than just building robots. We are providing an experience that will have a positive impact on a young person’s life. We are looking for companies and organizations to sponsor an individual team member as we take this journey together. By sponsoring one of our 12 students, we hope that this will turn into an everlasting bond that you and our student can share for many years to come, even pass their college days. We will provide you with the profile of your sponsored student and you will have an opportunity to meet him/her and their parents during one of our practices. Your sponsored student will wear only your company’s name on the back of their team shirt that will be worn for every scrimmage, competition, presentation, and outreach activity.

Where does your sponsorship go?

Your support ensures that costs are covered for every student on our FLL team for:

  • a team shirt with your company/organization’s name on the back.
  • a “crazy” hat to wear during competitions, presentations, and outreach activities.
  • FIRST Lego team registration fees.
  • regional competition fees
  • scrimmage fees
  • travel expenses to the regional competition
  • team building activities
  • team robots
  • team laptops
  • spare robot parts
  • competition mat & missions table
  • miscellaneous supplies

*The robots and computers will serve our students for a minimum of 5 years.

 

A big THANKS to our corporate sponsors!
