RCrobotic Team Going To The Championship - NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Yes, this page is specific to the Princess Theatre, but it also supports any activities in Roane, and surrounding counties, that supports our youth.  Here is a very important “youth” organization and they are in need of your support ASAP!

The RC-robotic team of RCHS is going to St. Louis for the Robotic Championship competition, and they have a very small window of time to raise enough money to take approximately 20 students, including 1 from Midway, to the 5-day competition in St. Louis on April 24-27.  Please check out their web-site
Full Metal Jackets is the pioneer FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Team, at Roane County High School in Kingston, Tennessee.

For those of you that do not know, here is the description for the Rookie All Star Award:

The award celebrates the rookie team exemplifying a young but strong partnership effort, as well as implementing the mission of FIRST: To inspire students to learn more about science and technology.

We should be so proud of our county team, and they are very grateful for everyone that has helped and supported them along the way!  Thank you again!

Because the Full Metal Jackets won the Rookie All Star Award, they are invited to the FIRST World Championship. However, it is very expensive for them to go; they need money to pay for travel, rooms, and registration. Please help if you can by donating on this website (http://rchsfullmetaljackets.wordpress.com/).
The Full Metal Jackets competed at the Smoky Mountain Regional Competition March 28-30, and were 19th seed out of 50, and were chosen by the 2nd seeded alliance for the elimination rounds. On the final day of competition, the Full Metal Jackets were selected to receive the Rookie All Star Award! This award celebrates the rookie team exemplifying a young but strong partnership effort, as well as implementing the mission of FIRST.

This award comes with an invitation to attend the FIRST World Championship to compete with 400 other teams in St. Louis April 24-27.
