We are FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Team 7477 Super 7 and we need your help.
Over the past five years as a team, we have learned a lot of technical and professional skills through FIRST LEGO League FLL and FTC. We are currently ranked 3rd in Florida and after the South Super Regional and we qualified for the World Championships in St. Louis from April 22-25 to compete against the top 128 of 4500 FTC teams in the world. We need to raise money for Airfare, lodging, transportation, and tournament registration.
An investment in Super 7 is not only going to teach nine students but it is an investment in the community throughout Florida. We are passionate about the game, but strive for an even greater goal: to mentor young teams and expose them to engineering via our community service. We are a small, self-supported team not supported by any school so we raise money through our community, friends, and local companies. It is because of people like you that we can successfully compete and learn through this amazing program.
