We have been lucky to be involved with the Andy Roddick Foundation for the past several years. This foundation is focused on the Austin community and takes the time children spend outside the classroom turning it into real opportunity. Over and over again, they engage children in high-quality learning and enriching experiences after school and during the summer - the months and times of day when children in communities that have been left out and left behind need them the most. They give every child every chance to find what they were born to do.
In particular, during the Summer Learning and Enrichment Program, ARF plans field trip experiences for participants based on the program theme of that particular year. The experience that we are most excited about for the students this year is the Solar Car Experience field trip that is being planned to align with the Travel Through Time theme for students at Hart Elementary. One hundred students will head to Circuit of the Americas and have the opportunity to race a solar car on the track. This experience has been a favorite of students who have gone through the program in past years and we would love to help raise enough money to cover some of the costs for this once in a lifetime event.
The cost to rent COTA for this field trip is $500. The cost to provide solar car materials for 100 students is $910 ($9.10 per student). Please help us meet our goal of $1410!!
