How it's organized!

Currently, Our team operates in the manner at right.  When the grant is approved, the newly formed girls team, equipment and robot will be under the team for governance and responsibility (see left).  

TEAM 3641, The Flying Toasters:   South Lyon Community Schools, South Lyon, MI 48178, encompasses 88 square miles and 11 schools. The South Lyon Robotics Club is a recognized club by the school district with it's own general account ledger (part of SLCS finance) and the ability to meet and use school property. All "gifts" are accepted by the school board and all property of the robotics team is considered part of the district.
Our "coach" is the faculty advisor, Mr. Weber, who has been with SLCS for over 10 years.  The Team, 3641, The Flying Toasters,  are a FIRST FRC robotics team and is under the South Lyon Robotics Club.  The Girls Team that will be formed to build the T-shirt launcher and breast cancer awareness robot will be under the faculty advisor, Mr. Weber, the South Lyon Robotics Club, and mentored/sponsored by The Flying Toasters.
