Sponsoring MetalCow

Our sponsors are an integral part of our team… none of this would be possible without them.

Corporate Sponsors

Invest in education and –

build the workforce of tomorrow

What are you supporting when you sponsor our team? MetalCow Robotics is a 4-H SPIN club that participates in FIRST Robotics Competitions. But it isn't just a robot. It is a small business where members learn digital media, advertising, web design, public speaking, business skills, and leadership. 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.

Your sponsorship enables us to:

Purchase supplies, tools, and build materials
Present education and outreach programs
Competition registration fees
Pay for travel and hotel fees

To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.
