Why You Should Become a Sponsor

When you become a sponsor of our FIRST robotics team you get so much more than your logo on our website, robot and team shirts. You are helping students learn: engineering, team building, business and leadership skills.

Why are students important to us?

Maker Works has three bottom lines—People, Planet, and Profit. Students are an important part of the People side for us. Both of Maker Works’ owners, Tom and Dale, have a technology background, and feel strongly that every student should have strong STEAM skills. Unfortunately, “making” is a lot less common in schools than in decades past, and many students don’t have an opportunity to learn the tools, materials, and techniques that we feel can be an enormous asset wherever their future studies and jobs take them.Maker Works logo

Why should other sponsors support FIRST teams?

If you have not watched the videos or visited a competition (and especially the pits) in person, you may not appreciate what amazing work these students are doing. These are hundred pound robots with often very sophisticated functions. If a wire is too thin, or a cross-piece not stiff enough, the robot won’t work—it’s a very real challenge. There’s a reason why the best employers and universities love seeing a FIRST experience on a resume—these are students that not only have worked together as a team to create a functional robot optimized for the task at hand, but have done so with professional values, good engineering, a concern for safety, and good sportsmanship. These are students that you’ll want to hire in a few years.”
