Robotics Team Sponsorships
We’re providing 6-10 sponsorships and mentorship to robotics teams from New York starting today.
This is a program that starts immediately. In return, we’ll expect you to document your work, spread STEM education and Kinet-X’s mission.
Why we’re doing this
We understand the positive effects of being on a robotics team - it’s how we got started with Kinet-X. It’s a great pathway to launching a career in tech and making an impact on the world.
The barriers are simple but painfully prevalent. Cash, and to a lesser extent, skills.
Resources we’ll provide
- Funding from $500 to $20,000
- Teams will have mentors who will provide mentorship to work with you on issues relating to robot construction, competition, marketing, outreach, etc.
- Pathway to part-time and full-time work at Kinet-X
- Commit to at least a 3-month long partnership
- Promote Kinet-X’s programs and workshops
- Impact a sizable amount of students and families in New York
- Make genuine progress in educating team members
What we’re looking for
- FIRST teams in NYC with a demonstrated history of community outreach
- Commitment to a partnership
- Passion about your team, robotics, and STEM as a whole
