We are high school students in La Crescenta, CA who sacrifice our free time in the name of building awesome robots.
We are Team 696, aka The Circuit Breakers, the Robotics Team from Clark Magnet High School in La Crescenta, CA . We are hard-working, enthusiastic students who are devoted to creating and building robots. By supporting us, you will be funding our team’s 2012 robot for the FIRST Long Beach Regional Competition, which includes buying materials, tools, and the entry fee. So far we have been successful in receiving funds from several local businesses, but we still need your help! Help our team win, and you won’t be sorry. Our team strives for excellence; however, our California school’s budget limits our ability for robotic perfection. So we are here, begging for your pocket change and we will pretty much do anything to get it. We are hoping, wait scratch that, we are going to win and we would like you to be part of our experience in doing so. While our friends are out going to parties, texting, and spending time on Facebook, we spend our time in the Robotics Lab at school. We have been into technology our whole lives and we are glad to be called the geeks of America.
