Bridgewater / Raynham’s TJ 2 Robotics Team
February 16 – 7 pm BRRHS Cafe – families invited to see season accomplishments.
TJ2 is a FIRST Robotics team. FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.” This is our 21st year in FIRST.
Every year we are given rules to a new game. We have 6.5 weeks to design, build, debug and drive our robot. We are part of the New England FIRST District. We are currently involved in district matches, fighting to earn a spot among the top 60 New England teams to compete in the New England FIRST District Championship. The top 30 teams from that competition go on to the World Championship in St. Louis at the end of April.
We competed in our first District event last week and won!!! We will compete at UMASS Dartmouth this weekend and hope to qualify for the District Championship.
We travel with 40 students and 24 mentors. The District Championship is being held in Hartford CT this year and it is a 2.5 hour drive from us. We have just raised enough money to be able to stay in a hotel for this competition. We are hoping to qualify for the World Championship this year as we did last year. We have no funding left to travel to the World Championship. We need your help! Please check out our www.gofundme.com page
