(Full disclosure: the author has a teenager on the MMCS robotics team, The Syntax Errors.)

From their press release: "A group of Albuquerque-area middle school students competed in a statewide competition on March 16th, and based on their performance, qualified for the VEX world championship robotics competition taking place April 17-20 in Anaheim, California. The team received the competition's Excellence Award, the highest award presented. The recipient of this award is a team that exemplifies overall excellence in building a well rounded VEX robotics program.

"The sixteen member Mountain Mahogany Charter School robotics team is the first team from New Mexico ever to have been invited to the world competition and is the only team from New Mexico to be invited this year. "

Since their Kickstarter project was turned down, The Syntax Errors are turning to more traditional methods of raising the funds necessary to purchase train tickets, lodging and licorice. They will be holding a bake sale/fundraiser tomorrow, Saturday March 30th, at Altura Park where supporters will be able to buy baked goods, coffee and Hexbugs from the team while checking out their kick-ass robot. Can't make it to Altura Park in between 9:30 am and 1:00 pm? Visit their nifty blog and make a donation through paypal.
