Our ultimate mission as a charity is to go out of business - a world where all young people have access to industry-linked robotics education - help us get there faster by donating time, resources or funding.

Donate time

Pay it forward – donating time as a mentor or volunteer will help equip young people with the ability to apply their learning and develop the core life skills to thrive.

Mentor a team

Mentors bring real-world perspective to the classroom coaching young people and preparing them to take on tomorrow's challenges. They might be employees from local industry, STEM ambassadors, parents, or just all round legends keen on paying it forward.

Volunteer at events

Not everyone can devote regular time - but many are able to offer ad-hoc support. We rely on a corps of passionate and dedicated Gamechangers from all backgrounds to fill technical and non-technical roles at robotics tournaments.

Donate resources

Young people deserve to be inspired by STEM in the same way they might engage with a sporting event or music festival. Our critical friends do cool things like: 

  • Providing great spaces to host events
  • Supporting with distribution of equipment
  • Enhancing the customer journey through expert advice and resource

There’s a myriad of ways your company or network can amplify impact via gift in kind.

Help us be More Than Robots

Donate money

Invest in the young people who will transform the future and make STEM accessible and inclusive for all.


Robotics kits supplied to teams are reusable year on year - ensuring that schools have an embedded, sustainable platform to develop multiple cohorts of young people.

Accessibility and inclusion

Events foster collaboration between teams, schools and industry whilst raising aspirations. Many schools struggle with travel and supply teacher cover - travel bursaries ensure accessibility and drive social mobility.
