Weʼve raised £0 to Help @sheffieldtoshanghai kids who are competing in the World Educational Robotics Final in Shanghai. They are the 1st UK kids to compete.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
5 kids from Sheffield will be the first ever competitors in the WER championship in Shanghai this coming December.
The kids travel costs have been sponsored by AMRC and Rolls Royce.
The kids need chaperones as the range from 6-12 so parents involvement is vital and the associated cost are approx 7k including Visas, Flights and Insurances. We have had lots of interest as the children get increasing media coverage and have set up this crowdfunder in response to requests of how people can further help . This is an amazing opportunity to raise the STEM profile of the UK. We appreciate all your donations and it will help to make sure the trip is successful. We are hoping that the children can put the UK firmly on the map as a country to be reconned with for producing top quality engineers. Sheffield Digital have been instrumental in helping by putting their hands deep in their pockets to allow us to register we now need to raise enough to lessen the blow of the 7k needed for a parent to travel .
