This coming FRC season, Texas Torque hopes to host the Afghan Dreamers in our lab to compete alongside us in the new district model. They need full funding ($30,000) to come here. We wanted to reach out to the FIRST community to help with their efforts and spread the word. Every donation is tax deductible. If $2000+ is donated by one party, your name or logo (even robotics teams logos) will go on their robot and published media materials. The team can take back the skills they learn from the FIRST community to teach generations of youth in Afghanistan at their new STEM school.
A few members of our team met and worked with this group of girls personally during the 2018 FIRST Global competition, and can without a doubt say we were instantly inspired. Here is a recent article CNN published about their team captain, Fatemah Qaderyan.
