WANT TO SPONSOR US?

Red Arrow Robotics is open to any high school and middle school students in the Lowell area. There is no direct cost to students to join the team because it is important to us that anyone can benefit from this educational opportunity. The Red Arrows Robotics Team’s 2020 season cost more than $10,000. This total includes $5000 for season and competition registration and over $5,000 in supplies to build our robot and practice field. When the team qualifies for the State and World Championships an additional $5000 registration fee will be required for each level. The student team members earned $5,000 through their own fundraising efforts and generous sponsors such as yourself contributed nearly the same amount. As we begin the 2022 competition season, the team does not have enough to build a robot, participate in competitions and prepare for next season. We deeply appreciate you taking the me to consider supporting our team as a sponsor by making a tax-free donation to Red Arrow Robotics. Thank you!


The following are suggestions for sponsorship levels. We are happy to explore other opportunities with sponsors. The team would also love to make a presentation to your business or group about robotics and offer a demonstration of what we learn and do together.

OTHER INFO

In addition to these sponsorship levels, the team is happy to accept donations of gift cards to hardware (Ace or other stores) or home improvement stores, such as Menards or Home Depot. These will help us purchase materials to build our robot, or to replicate the competition field for practice. In addition, during build season, we meet every Saturday for the entire day. Any snacks, drinks, or contributions of food will help keep our team fueled and ready to learn and do! Finally, we are always looking for mentors. Adults of nearly any professional experience, but who are willing to show young people how, without doing tasks for them are always welcome. Engineers, programmers and people in the skilled trades are of particular use, of course, but we could also use assistance from marketers, salespersons and anyone willing to lend a hand. Please complete page three and be sure to provide your contact information if you are interested in learning more about becoming a FIRST mentor.
