Financial support will enable us to make mentor-based STEM robotics programmes directly accessible to more young people in the UK & Ireland - in a local, tangible, tractable way.
Subsidising robotics kits
The robotics kits required by teams cost £800 direct from the supplier - subsidising these reusable kits will remove barriers to entry and make FIRST® Tech Challenge accessible and sustainable for years to come.
During the FIRST® Tech Challenge season teams attend a number of regional and national events - supporting travel and accommodation costs will facilitate more teams participating.
Sponsoring an event
FIRST® Tech Challenge UK & Ireland host free events for teams: challenge launches, regional practice tournaments, and the UK & Ireland championships - gift in kind and sponsorship will help us make these gatherings memorable and inspirational.
