CyberKnights Uganda
Concert will be held Friday, May 11, 2018 at 7:00pm in Mike Martin Gym at King’s High School

Students from King’s High School in Shoreline have formed a Classical Rock band called “Right Turn Only” and are set to perform a concert on May 11, 2018, 7pm at Mike Martin Gym.

Students are donating all proceeds to the Beacon of Hope School, Pilgrim Africa in Soroti, Uganda.

The students of “Right Turn Only” have partnered with King’s High School ASB representatives, as well as the King’s High School FRC Robotics Team 4911 CyberKnights.

The King’s High School Robotics team has worked closely with the Beacon of Hope School before, as they started the first East African FTC Robotics Team, CyberKnights Uganda, five years ago.

The CyberKnights have maintained a close relationship with the Beacon of Hope School, visiting nearly every summer and video-chatting throughout the year. The STEM program and robotics team at the Beacon of Hope School has now proven to be sustainable, as the team has competed in international competitions such as GISUTECH, where they were gold medalists, and received national news coverage. The money raised at the benefit concert will be used to financially support the construction of a new robotics lab in Uganda.

The concert is open to the public and the students are looking forward to inviting in members of their local community. Tickets can be purchased online for $10 for students, $15 for adults, and $20 at the door.

Pilgrim Africa is an international non-profit organization based in Seattle with the goal of helping to create a sustainable community of prosperity and health in Africa. In 2006, Pilgrim Africa started the Beacon of Hope School in Soroti, Uganda, as a place where former child soldiers could be educated.

The CyberKnights seek to inspire an interest and passion for science and technology while preparing students to become industry leaders in tomorrow’s competitive global marketplace.
