The revered scholar Isaac Newton once said, “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” Building the robot and arranging our competitions is a task too large to do alone, and often, we do need the help of giants.

Over the years we have had many sponsors and mentors who have helped us even in the toughest of times. This page is here to thank them for their support then, now, and forever.
