Monrovia High School's Robotics team prepare their robot for the Robotics World Championship held in St. Louis.

MONROVIA, Calif. (KABC) -- Members of Monrovia High School's robotics team are putting the final touches on their robot, Sr. Lancelot, for next week's competition.

Last year, The Kings and Queens team competed in the FTC Robotics World Championship, but with a different robot. Their team was only 1 of 22 teams to earn the right to come back this year.

The cost to travel and compete is $12,000, but the team is short about $3,000. The robotics team has started a Gofundme account to raise the extra money they need.

Watch Amy Powell's full report in the video above.
