Sponsoring Our Team

Thank you for considering sponsoring the MetalCow Robotics team. Our mission is to promote science, technology, and engineering in the community while helping students gain real world skills they can use for the rest of their lives.

MetalCow Robotics is a 4-H  SPIN club that participates in FIRST robotics competitions. But, it is much more than robotics; it is a small business where members learn digital media, advertising, web design, public speaking, business skills, and leadership.

The team is made up of students ages 13 to 18 from the McLean county area. We manage the business of the team and create robots from the ground up. Our members come from all walks of life which provides a great opportunity to learn how to work together on a common goal. We have adult mentors from the community who are concerned about the future of America, and dedicate their time to make a difference in our lives.

Building and competing in robotics can be quite expensive and without support from our generous sponsors we could not have the life learning experiences provided by robotics competition. Sponsoring your MetalCow Robotics Team is a great way to support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in the McLean county area. Your donation will go towards registration fees, robot parts, materials, building rent/utilities, competition traveling expenses, and community outreach activities.

MetalCow Robotics is currently seeking sponsors for the 2015/16 FIRST Robotics Competition season. MetalCow Robotics is a non-profit organization and your sponsorship may be tax-deductible. We need support of sponsors like you to continue to provide this unique opportunity in our community.

Every sponsor is greatly appreciated and we have several levels of sponsor benefits.
