As a volunteer-operated, not-for-profit organization, the W.A.F.F.L.E.S. robotics teams would not be able to operate without the support of our partners and sponsors. Their generous continued support give our teams the equipment and materials they need to work with, the space they need to work in, and the opportunity to be a part of our organization. Our sponsors enable our students to learn and gain valuable hands-on experience in STEM fields.
We love to form strong relationships with our sponsors and give back to them! We are happy to do site visits and demonstrations, or collaborate with them on projects and events. Throughout the season, we also send updates on where we are at to keep our supporters involved from the idea stage to the final products and performances.
Our sponsors support us in a variety of ways:
- Financial donations
- Materials in-kind (eg. access to supplier network, metal, wires, Lexan, etc.)
- Donation of services (eg. machining, printing, etc.)
- Lending expertise by an employee acting as a mentor
