Sponsor the Central Park STEAM Robotics Team at higher levels to see your organization name on our team shirt or banner at every maker, robotics or STEAM event that we showcase at!Students with shirts

Every team member wears a Central Park STEAM Robotics Team shirt at every major event where we compete or showcase robotics technology. Parents and coaches wear the team shirt as well at events.

 

Every booth we host proudly displays the Central Park STEAM Robotics Team in full 8'x4' banners as well as 6'x2.5' table banners. Our activities are always highly engaging drawing in constant crowds from opening to ending.

 

Our Central Park STEAM Robotics Team blog is updated almost weekly on the Central Park Elementary web site. Our web site analytics currently sport an average of 1,203 active users per month with 50% of our visitors on desktops and 50% on mobile devices! 

 

Central Park STEAM Robotics Team is a parent volunteer operated organization. We have no paid staff from SCUSD. Unlike the STEM programs at Cabrillo Middle and Santa Clara High SchoolStudents with banners, we receive $0 from the millions of dollars that those programs receive.  We have pooled funds together through small fundraisers, a grant from the Rec Foundation and primarily parent donations. We are parent powered!

 

But it is not enough! During our last application round, we had over 75 students (25% of the entire school!) ask to join the Central Park STEAM Robotics Team. We had kids on free and reduced lunch ask to join. 

 

But we don't have enough equipment. We need funding support to help get robotics equipment for all the kids who wish to learn and participate in robotics events. Please help kids get inspired by STEAM!

 

Equipment needed:

  • LEGO Education Mindstorms EV3 Core and Expansion
  • Super VexIQ Robotics Kit
  • LEGO Education WeDo 2.0
  • LEGO Education Simple Machines and Motorized Mechanisms
  • LEGO Education Pneumatics Expansion Kit
  • LEGO Education Renewable Energy Expansion Kit
  • Hummingbird Robotics Deluxe Kits
  • Raspberry Pi kits
  • Arduino kits
  • MacBook Air or Pro current models
  • Windows10 laptops with 8GB RAM, i7 and 4-8GB VRAM
  • iPad tablets
