Update Mar. 26, 2014 -- The project reports they are about $5,000 away from their fundraising goal.
To raise the remainder they're holding a live comedy show called "Comics Stripped" on April 3, at Lawrence E. Jones Middle School, feature Johnny Steel and Geoff Bolt. Or, donors can contribute to a crowdgiving campaign.
On today's North Bay Report we visit Technology High School in Rohnert Park where students say participating in a regional robotics competition is giving them the tools to reach their college and career goals.
The Tech High robotics program is seeking fundraising help and community mentorship. Those with a marine, engineering or business background are urged to contact techhighrobotics [at] gmail.com. The students hope their robots will gain them entry to this year's international competition in Michigan. See highlights from last year's event.
