What we're all about

Team h2 d2 photo red

Thank you for taking the time to support four kids, ages 8-14, who are pioneering a VEX IQ Robotics program at Engineering for Kids in Las Vegas.


It is only the first time ever competing in robotics for all of us, but our cooperation, determination and hours upon hours of tedious work have paid great dividends already. So far, we have claimed two Teamwork Competition Championships, and we are NevadaState Championsfor the STEM Presentation Award. 


Our ranking in the World Skills Standings qualifies us for a coveted entry into the VEX IQ World Championships, where teams from all around the world will be representing their countries at this global event held in Louisville in April. We are only privately funded (thus far by our military dads), but the cross-country trip to Worlds will require a significant budget for registration, travel, accommodations and expenses. 

Your contributions will be fully tax-deductible, and every dollar will support the four of us kids working together in STEM fields and will pave the road to the World Championships. As a thank you for your support, we would love to provide positive publicity for your company. Ask us how!
