Camps and Classes

ORTOP does not run the summer camps or endorse any specific camp. Camps are listed as starting point for parents to investigate summer robotics/science & engineering opportunities. Summer camps are organized by outside third parties. Any questions about these camps should be directed to the camp directors.

For summer LEGO Robotics opportunities check with Saturday Academy and OMSI.

Fundraising

Each new team will need about $900 or more for registration fees, kits, and related costs. In addition they will need transportation to the tournaments. See the sample team costs for details. Costs for returning teams will be less because most of their materials from the previous year can be used again.

Teams will often use a combination of approaches to underwrite their efforts.

  • Team member dues. Often a team will request that each team member contribute a certain minimum amount towards the costs of the team. Depending on the team and the ability of the team members to pay, each member might contribute from ten to hundred dollars.
  • Fundraising activities. Teams may decide to engage in fundraising activities such as car washes, garage sales, or bake sales.
  • Team sponsors. Often a local business or private individual will be interested in sponsoring a team. The sponsor may contribute part of the costs of the team. In addition the sponsor may want to help purchase team shirts or hats. The sponsor will often appreciate recognition on the team shirts, banners, etc.
