Our Sponsors

Our sponsors make our entire season and robotics journey possible.  Without their financial and in-kind support, got robot? couldn't accomplish all we do in a season.  In addition to the organizations and companies listed below, we want to thank Marc and Pat Solomon for their continued financial support.

Become a Sponsor

Sponsors are important to FIRST Tech Challenge teams for several reasons. First, sponsors can provide financial support, which can be used to cover the cost of building and competing with a robot. This can be especially important for teams that are composed of students from low-income families or schools that do not have a lot of funding for extracurricular activities.


Additionally, sponsors can provide resources and expertise that can help teams improve their robots. For example, a sponsor might provide a team with access to a machine shop or 3D printing equipment that they would not otherwise have. They may also provide engineers or other professionals who can mentor and advise the team.


Lastly, sponsorships are a way for companies to build relationships with future engineers, scientists and also offer some kind of internship or job opportunity for the students. Sponsorships also can be used for team branding and communication, for example by including the sponsor's name or logo on the robot, uniforms or website.
