In only its second year of existence, Milwaukee School of Engineering’s community FIRST® Robotics Competition team, “Milwaukee Cyber Cheese,” is moving on to the world championships April 19-22 in Houston, Texas. The team of high school students qualified for the championship after being the winning alliance at the Wisconsin Regional competition last weekend.
Milwaukee Cyber Cheese is a team of students from Milwaukee-area public and private high schools that do not have a FIRST Robotics Competition team of their own. Students on the team are from Golda Meir, Pathways, St. Joan Antida, St. Augustine Prep, Greendale, West Allis Central and Shorewood high schools.
With the world championships coming up soon, the team’s next challenge is fundraising. Their goal is to raise $16,000 to cover the travel, hotel and food costs for each of their 16 members and shipping fees for their robot. Giving to our STEM Programming Fund will support this team in its pursuit of a world championship.
MSOE supports this community team and provides them with space in the We Energies STEM Center at MSOE to meet, build their robot and practice for the competition. MSOE students and staff serve as the team’s coaches and mentors.
