Help Vote for a Robot Grant

Do something good today. Take 30 seconds and vote by text. You’ll erase some bad karma from that one thing you know you did…

RoboGames is up for a $25,000 grant to help bring robotics classes to underprivileged middle schoolers around the San Francisco Bay Area, and you can help!  Pepsi is offering large grants to non-profits such as the Robotics Society (the parent organization of RoboGames), but only the top few ideas will win.

You don’t need to give us any money, you just need to vote!  Please help us get funding to get more kids building robots for the 2012 games! We are poised to make this a great year for community centers, under funded schools, and a whole slew of other folks with your help!  If we win the voting, we can put robots in the hands of about 120 kids and provide them with teachers for a full semester of after-school instruction.  All leading up to them competing at RoboGames.  The classes will get kids autonomous robots, and teach them how to program and build the robots to
compete in multiple events in next April’s event.

And neither you nor the kids have to pay a cent!

Here’s the link to vote: http://pep.si/nHlOZZ or you can vote by texting 107947 to Pepsi (73774) to vote from your mobile phone.

And you can vote once per day!  So vote today, tomorrow, and every day this month!

This will barely take any time at all, but can impact the lives of a lot of kids who’d never get to learn about robotics otherwise.  We can inspire them to keep studying STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), and all you have to do is vote!”
