Sean's FIRST Robotics Team went to the Regional Tournament held at UCDavis, and came home WINNERS!!
Here's the winning team, or "Alliance".
From Sean's letter to friends and family:
I am Sean Leapley, and I am a proud member of the FIRST robotics team #3189, the El Dorado Union High School District (EDUHSD) Circuit Breakers.
This is our team's third year participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition (http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc). On our first year, we were awarded the Rookie Inspiration Award and a member of our team was awarded as a Dean's List Finalist. In our second year, a member of our team was recognized as a Dean's List Finalist. This year, most importantly, the Circuit Breakers are one of three teams that won Sacramento Regional Competition, meaning that we are advancing to the championships in St Louis, Missouri. However, we need your help to get our robot, Andromeda, and our team to the championships and ask that you please contribute to our team efforts. A donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated. Every dollar helps! Furthermore, we are also looking for corporate sponsors, so if you are part of a company that can sponsor the team, or know people in other companies that can be contacted for sponsorships, please let me know.
To make a donation, please make checks payable to EDUHSD Robotics, and mail to: EDUHSD Robotics, Shenandoah High School, 6540 Koki Lane, El Dorado, CA, 95623. If an online donation via check, credit card or PayPal is preferred, please donate through PaySchools on this district website http://www.eduhsd.k12.ca.us/PaySchools.htm (click on Robotics Team).
The Circuit Breakers are dedicated to the mission of FIRST Robotics, working to inspire students in pursuing careers in engineering, as well as instilling confidence.
I would love to hear from you if you can help, or if you have any questions about our program and my participation in the robotics team.
Thanks to all friends and family who have shown their support so far. This has been so exciting for all involved, thank you!!
