The robots were destroyed in a Dec. 8 arson fire that devastated a campus computer room, causing an estimated $1.8 million in damage.
Three former students — Cameron Bratcher, Michael Benadiba and Jacob Ruth — have been charged in connection with the fire.
Local nonprofit organization Softec raised $32,000 to help the team, surpassing a goal of $7,500. So far, $8,500 has been awarded.

The Softec board has formulated an oversight committee, including team advisor Jan Fetcho, to distribute the remainder of the funds.
“We are so impressed with Mrs. Fetcho, Room 307 teacher, and all of her students for the time they committed over the winter break to completely rebuild the robots and get them ready for this weekend’s tournament,” said Stewart Morse, Softec’s board president.
