Our Sponsors

Thank you to all of our sponsors!

Building a robot is expensive. Without the support of sponsors, we would not be able to get the supplies to build our robot and compete. Thank you for considering helping our team.

Ravinia Brewing Company

On October 26th of 2022 at the restaurant Ravinia brewery, our robotics team taught students at the local elementary and middle schools who were involved in their school's FIRST® Lego League robotics teams about our robotics team and how FIRST® Tech Challenge works. We set up a simple obstacle course and let the students drive the robot through it in order to inspire them to continue to do robotics through high school and allow them to understand what it will look like if they continue to stick with robotics. The main goal of this project was to inspire kids so that they would look forward to participating in FIRST® Tech Challenge when they are older.

PREMIER Design + Build Group

PREMIER was founded in 2004 by three big thinkers with a singular vision. The focus has remained the same since day one: think outside the box to streamline the building process from concept to completion. They work alongside clients and building partners to manage projects, solve problems before they happen, shorten timelines, and reduce costs while delivering an exceptional end result.
