We are a group of 11 students of the 4th grade at the public high school “INS Can Jofresa of Terrassa”. Together we make up The Lego Stones. This year we are participating in the First Lego League, a robotics competition that combines three parts to determine the winner: programming a robot made with Lego, a science project and scores acquired during the competition. This is the second year that we are participating in the competition and, having gained some experience last year, this year we were able to reach the national final held in Tenerife (22/03/2015), where we got the prize that gave us access to the International Final to be held on the 15th, 16th and 17th of May in Arkansas, USA.
To make this trip, we need to raise at least €20,000 taking into account the distance and thedays we are going to spend there. It's obvious that our families can't pay our trip because of the price and even more so considering the fact that we are living in times of economic crisis. That's why we have opened this Verkami, hoping to raise enough money.
For reasons of time, we could not modify the data of the Verkami, but with this initiative we are trying to raise 20,000€ through crowdfunding. 500€ was the amount needed to travel to Tenerife. The time period isn't correct either, because the competition is not until May 15. However, we need the money urgently because long-distanced flights have to be purchased well in advance.
If every person who reads these lines contributes a small amount of money, our dream would come true. A little help is enough. We do need your help, so please share this link on all your social networks because the more people see it the better. The contributions will go entirely to finance the trip, stay and some necessary equipment. We will send one of our gifts to everyone who contributes a certain amount of money.
Our science project is called Tools and Resources for the Social Integration of Children and its aim is to promote good relationships among children, regardless of their gender, race or social class. Its objective is to eradicate competitive activity, racism, stereotypes, exclusion, bullying, etc.
The aim of our project is to disseminate importance of good social integration for the future of a child.
