The Chickadees, FRC Team 5871, are a girl-founded high school FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team sponsored by the Boise State University College of Engineering. The Chickadees are an inclusive team that is open to all genders, races, ethnicities, and abilities. We aim to inspire future generations in STEM by ensuring that all members take an active role in team leadership and all aspects of building the robot and running the team. This team was founded, in part, to inspire girls to enter STEM fields where they have historically been underrepresented.

We will be traveling to a competition in Utah at the end of this month and any donations made right now will greatly help the team to cover the costs of travel and attending this competition!

You can donate through the University Foundation (Fund NR128 - FIRST Robotics) using the link above.
