  2. 2. About Us: Panthrobotics (FRC #3337) is a multicultural team of students engaged in bringing a passion for math, science, engineering and computing to our community and to Woodlawn High School, a Title I public school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, by participating in yearly FIRST® Robotics competitions, community activism, and media and political involvement. Through these experiences, we are learning important skills that will aide us in becoming professionals. Panthrobotics motivates students from all walks of life to employ the skills they have learned in school to real-life experiences. Each year,A group of students work on electrical components. club members design a 120lb robot from scratch to compete in robotics competitions through FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a non- profit organization founded by inventor Dean Kamen2. They accomplish this task in six weeks with the help of engineers, scientists, and other mentors. The team then competes with this robot against thousands of other schools from around the world in regional competitions and at the World Championship in Saint Louis, Missouri. Panthrobotics creates opportunities for students to engage science and technology through participation in these yearly robotics competitions. Studies have shown that participants in FIRST® Robotics Competitions are: Three timesmore likely to major in engineering. More than twice as likely to pursue a career in science or technology 1 More than twice as likely to volunteer in their communities . Panthrobotics is also heavily involved in the community, participating in events to show the importance of science and engineering through demonstrations at local businesses as well as in elementary and middle schools. The organization is also involved in raising awareness of robotics education both in the media through appearances in print, television, and internet media as well as through political involvement. As a school-based organization, Panthrobotics depends on the funding provided by sponsors that recognize the need for a workforce trained in the fields of science, engineering, and business. The team requires approximately $50,000 to cover yearly budget costs such as travel, registration fees, and building components. Sponsors can also provide a consistent group of mentors to assist in the management of the team as well as to lend their experience to students in the design and implementation of the robot. Organizations that choose to support Panthrobotics through a tax-deductible donation are publically acknowledged in the media, our promotional material and on the robot itself. Our audience is continually growing and we are proud to provide our sponsors continued visibility both on the local and national stage. By lending support and funding, sponsors can guarantee that students will leave their high school with the skills necessary to succeed as well as lead in today’s society. 1.
