Robot
Our robot this year is called “Da Foot” – A reusable engine with an innovative strategy to complete the robot run quickly and efficiently.  Our robot wore different shoes to complete various runs across the field.

Project
Our project this year is the “Fantastic Bioplastic”. Bioplastic is a biodegradable and edible plastic substitute. The team hopes to increase awareness of the issues that plastic can cause to marine animals like strangling or trapping the animals.

 

Fundraising
We are trying to raise funds to help with some of our expenses for EV3 kits, lego replacement parts, enhancing project, presentation material, travel, lodging and meals.

Sponsorship
The team seeks sponsorships and grants from businesses like you to help cover the expenses and greatly appreciates the generosity of all sponsors. The success of our team and our diverse outreach is dependent on the financial support we receive from our sponsors. We would like you to be one of our 2017 sponsors.

The grants we receive help us pay for registration at various competitions, parts, and equipment. The money is also used in our outreach as we mentor budding teams and introduce children to robotics. We will acknowledge our sponsors on our team website tacobots.org and include sponsors’ logos. Sponsors who donate $500 and above will be acknowledged with their logo on our team T-shirt and banner.

I hope that you will become part of Team Tacobot’s success. You can reach us through our team email sponsorship@tacobots.org
