  • Help cover the costs of sending students from Boyle Heights (East LA) to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition.
  • Purchase much needed supplies, necessary tools, equipment and materials for Boyle Heights students.
  • Help foster skills which will allow these students to compete for the careers & jobs of the future.
  • Provide tools & funding to further their education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
