Our ultimate mission as a charity is to go out of business, by creating 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 in their future careers.

Mentor a team

Mentors bring a real-world perspective to the classroom – coaching young people and preparing them to take on tomorrow's challenges. They can 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 to mentor a team but many are able to offer ad-hoc support. We rely on a squad of passionate and dedicated Game Changers from all backgrounds to fill technical and non-technical roles at robotics events.

Donate resources

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

  • Venues – providing great spaces to host regional and local events
  • Distribution – supporting with storage and distribution of equipment 
  • Expertise – enhancing the customer journey through expert advice

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 young people who will transform the future by making STEM accessible and inclusive for all. Providing financial support for the programme impacts teams through:

Kit bursaries

The 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.
