TNFIRST, a non-profit and tax-exempt corporation, hosts annual robotics competitions in support of connecting K12 students to the world of problem-solving, team-building, and technology. We are approaching our ninth year of the Smoky Mountains FRC Regional Event, held every March at the Thompson Boling Arena on the University of Tennessee campus in Knoxville, TN. We are also initiating a program called FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) with an inaugural event in middle Tennessee in February 2019. Both of these annual competitions need financial support for equipment, audio/video, food/drink, services, signage, insurance, and so on…….to the tune of well over $100K each year. TNFIRST also works with FIRST robotic teams to help provide mentoring and even funding as we can afford to. These team funds are used for them to attend events and acquire equipment and supplies for their robot build efforts.
Your donation supports all of the work outlined above and is MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!
