- Why We Need Your Support:

- Building Our Robot: To meet the competition guidelines, we need approximately $4,000 or more for purchasing essential components and materials for constructing our robot. This is a crucial step towards our dream of success in the competition.
- Inclusivity: The BCS RoboSharks Team 4299 is all about inclusion. We’re committed to creating an environment where every student can be their authentic self and explore their passion for robotics, regardless of their background or identity.
- Independence: Staying free from corporate sponsorships allows us to ensure that our projects are driven solely by the innovative spirit of our team members, unburdened by external interests.
