FRC Team 6004 f(x) Robotics FoxChalk Fundraiser

September 10 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

On Saturday, September 10, from 10:00 in the morning until 3:00 in the afternoon, Team 6004, f(x) Robotics will host their inaugural sidewalk chalk competition in Downtown Smithfield. Proceeds from this fundraiser, entitled FoxChalk, will support the robotics team’s project to build assistive technology with robots to help students with dexterity limitations in Exceptional Children classrooms in local elementary schools.

At FoxChalk, competitors will create art using sidewalk chalk in sections of the 100 block of S. Third Street and E. Market Street between Second and Fourth streets. There is no cost for entrants, who will be provided a t-shirt, chalk, and one sidewalk square in which to create. Artists can register at bit.ly/FoxChalk. Members of the public will vote for their favorite squares at $1 per vote, and prizes will be offered to the winners.

FIRST Robotics Competition Team 6004 f(x) Robotics was formed in 2015 as a community-based FIRST Robotics Competition team housed at Smithfield-Selma High School. To learn more about FoxChalk and Team 6004, f(x) Robotics, please visit http://frc6004.com or email them at [email protected]
