Where the money goes:
So, what happens to all the money our sponsors give us anyway?
Well, it goes toward paying for administrative costs (like team registration, competition registration, travel costs, etc.) and robot parts (computer parts, electrical components, chassis components, tools, batteries, etc.) Our machine shop is graciously provided by the Reevie family, and all our mentors are volunteers who donate hundreds of hours of their time for the team.
But, what’s the point of all this, anyway? Simple: to give students in Springwater Township an opportunity to get hands-on with real-world tools, machinery, and mechanical methods in a teamwork-based, high-stakes environment. Through the program, the students gain experience and confidence in engineering, math, CAD, web development, CNC, machining, time and project management, brainstorming, design, and computer programming, as well as public speaking, event organization, media management, and collaboration.
So, by donating to the JavaWockies, you can be sure that your money goes toward a worthy cause – namely, improving the skillset of tomorrow’s workers.
