Last month, members of RoboSquad 5891 from UA Global Commerce won a slot at the World Championships in St. Louis. This month they’re raising the travel expenses.

After winning in the New York Regional FIRST Robotics Competition at Javits Center, the students of RoboSquad 5891 at the Urban Assembly School for Global Commerce in Harlem tackled a new challenge: raising  expense money for the trip to the Finals in St. Louis.
