As you may know, I have a 13-year old daughter. She is in 7th grade. Her middle school has a chapter of the Technology Student Association. This is her second year as a member of the club. They do all sorts of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) competitions.
At the regional competition this year, she helped build a solar-powered car, a bridge, and a website on 3D printing. All of these ended up qualifying for the next competition level - states. At the state competition, she built a glider that flew for over 8 seconds, she helped build another bridge, and she helped build a mobile map of her school. The map display placed third, which qualified her to go to the national competition.
The national competition takes place in Dallas, TX this year. She would really like to attend. However, it is a little expensive to get from Philadelphia to Dallas. So I have started a crowdfunding site to raise the funds to get her there. I would really appreciate it if you could toss a few dollars her way or share the link on your choice of social media sites. She has worked very hard to qualify for nationals. It would be awesome if she could actually go.
Thank you so much for helping!
