There are several ways you can help us.
Our team is always looking for new mentors. Mentors come into our workshop, communicate with us electronically via email, social media channels or our own forum in order to teach us new skills and enhance our old ones. Mentors are invaluable, and if you want to offer your knowledge to the team, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Sponsors are people or groups that support us monetarily which enable us to purchase parts and components of our robots, register for competitions, develop our community outreach projects and more. Many of our sponsors also work with our mentors to teach us new skills, provide us with additional supplies and components that we would otherwise not be able to build or purchase ourselves. Sponsors are given a spot for their logo on our team shirts, website and banners. Sponsors are welcome to visit us in our workshop or at our competitions.
We also have several fundraising programs that you can help us as well:
