This year, our team made it to the finals in the Middle School Division at US Open and can’t wait for next season! But next year, I won’t be able to take robotics. My friends and I have thought of an idea to make a team of our own but we need to set it up. I have created a budget and logo for our team. I need to make sure I have enough parts to build a robot and make a team. We still need sponsors but we will try finding some down the way. Am I missing any parts or essential items or do not have enough parts?
Looks like you have a brand which is good! You have a pretty good list and are pretty spot on. Some other elements are non Vex parts like toolboxes, tools, etc. You can say you already have them at home or cost them in here. Pneumatics is another cost that could be added on too.
The initial year costs are higher than year 2+ costs. Field, tools, and some core parts are used year over year. So if you need to sell this to others, you may want to consider breaking out the year 1 vs year 2+ costs for future fees/donations.
You have to take a class to be in robotics? how many other teams are like that? That would kinda stink if it didn’t fir in the schedule and it ruins such a good opportunity. Anyway, hope you can follow through!!
