We thank our sponsors for enabling us to engage in an industry-level engineering experience. Sponsors provide us the resources to cover robot parts, tools, and travel expenses. Depending on the year, costs can be as high as $100,000 and every penny counts. For more information about the team’s fundraising, see the Fundraising Flyer! If you own or are part of a business that wishes to sponsor the team, please contact us at  sponsor@ironclaw972.org for more information.
