Meal Help in the Upcoming Build Season (Jan-April, 2019)
Fueling the team is an important part of success.
Meals are provided on a cost-recovery basis for 20-30 team members on Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat during the build season (Jan-Mar). Meals are typically $3-$5, and should be simple and nutritious. The price is set by the parent volunteers to cover the cost of ingredients. Please consider signing up to bring in a meal for the team.
Volunteer by filling in the meal volunteer spreadsheet here.
Runnymede Robotics is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team. In FRC, students need the support of industry mentors as well as community members as they learn to raise funds, market their abilities, build a robot, engage with the community and ultimately compete in competitions.
It takes a community to run a successful robotics team.
Mentor a Sub-Team
Mentors for the sub-teams can be industry experts, or just parents with no experience. If you are interested in one of the sub-teams (like building a robot or helping with fundraising and marketing), then sign up to help out. Experienced mentors will be there to help you learn the ropes and guide you through your first FIRST season.
It is expensive to build complex robots and to compete in FRC competitions. Each year, the team raises money from sponsors and donors. The money raised is critical to the success of the team. Please let us know if you can put us in contact with potential sponsors or donors.
