Parents and Volunteers

All of our goals could not be achieved without the continuous support of parents. Your donations help us keep our club open to all students without charging any membership fees. (Scroll down to “Donations” to see how you can directly assist to the team!) In addition, we are always in need of help throughout the season with chaperones, supervisors, and food donors. Don’t know how you can help us? Send us an email!


Our team relies on mentors to provide guidance in specific areas of expertise ranging from mechanical design to programming to marketing and business. If you have skills and knowledge you want to lend to the next generation of scientists and engineers, consider becoming a mentor for the team!


Corporate sponsors are one of the most prominent sources of funding for our team. Whether you are a local business or an international corporation, we welcome monetary donations of any amount as well as in-kind donations such as materials and parts or machining facilities.
