The Robosavages

We have started our new season. Please check us out on Facebook Gladstone Robosavages 2. Like and share if you please.

We could use some help going to the worlds.

We are sending 3 teams two the worlds.
That part is great.
Unfortunately it is expensive to go so we could use some financial help.

We will be running the school store for a few weeks, so come buy something from us.

Our school’s amazing talanted Musical theatre group will be putting on a joint fund-raising musical show on Friday March 27th. Please come and support our students, both the talented in robots and in music. Tickets are only $5.

If you wish to make a direct donation the column to the right has some details…
You can choose from several ways to have your donation used.
Help send students whose families are having a hard time affording this great but expensive trip.
Help us buy some much needed new parts or upgrades.
Sponsor directly the registration of one of our three robots. Robot registration is $1000 dollars and sponsoring this will let you “name” on of our robots.

Also any donation of $20 or over will get a taxable donation receipt. And note that $20 is what we need for a new motor…:)

Hey also check out these links of our students in recent interviews.
