ComputerGear Sponsors FIRST Washington FIRST Lego League Robot Competition
Inspiring Young People to be Science and Technology Leaders
Woodinville, WA October 10, 2017 -- ComputerGear, Inc., the expert in science, tech, engineering, and math (STEM) T-shirts and gifts since 1993, announced today its sponsorship of a For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology (FIRST) Washington FIRST LEGO League Robotics Competition team, Big Rock Robotics comprised of young people grades 4-8 in Duvall, WA. FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology and it's as close to "real-world" engineering as a student can get. This year's robot game theme is a hydro dynamics challenge. "We're excited to sponsor these kids," said Terry Powers, ComputerGear, Inc. spokesperson. "They've named themselves "PDF's" (People From Duvall) and designed a team T-shirt in the spirit of the competition theme. By engaging them in a fun program that builds science, engineering and technology skills, we’re inspiring their innovation, fostering self-confidence, and promoting communication and leadership." Under strict rules, limited resources and time limits, FIRST Robotics Competition teams are comprised of 4 or more students and are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand", work on team building skills and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each of 1,140 teams across Washington state, 3,660 in USA. For more information on the program, visit www.firstwa.org or www.usfirst.org. ComputerGear® founded in 1993 to make technology fun and promote math and science sells a wide range of fun and educational science, tech, engineering and math (STEM) T-shirts and gifts through ecommerce sites, including ComputerGear.com and a nationally syndicated mail order catalog. Corporate offices are at 19510 144th Ave NE #E5 Woodinville WA 98072. For a catalog or more information call ComputerGear, Inc. at (425) 487-3600 x120 or visit the web site at www.ComputerGear.com.
