The Howdy Bots have an annual operating budget of approximately $150,000.  The many parts we use to build our robots, materials needed to market our team, costs for travel, food and registration fees for competitions add up quickly.  We turn to family, friends and individual supporters as well as corporate sponsors to help us raise the money we need to have a team year to year.  There are MANY ways to support our team!
