HELP SUPPORT OUR TEAM
Tigard High School Technology team is a large, vibrant, and diverse after school club that that promotes STEM education through participation in FIRST robotics competitions and other STEM related events. With the help of our sponsors, the THS Tech Team has expanded from a club with six members with one robot in 2007, to a varsity letter Team, fielding four FTC Teams, an FRC Team, three Oregon Game Project Teams, a Marine Advanced Technology Education Team, and a High Altitude Ballooning Team.
We pride ourselves on being one of the few clubs at Tigard High school that doesn’t charge our students participation fees of any kind. As you can imagine, a program of this size does not come with a cheap price tag. Every year we pay for event registrations, we purchase robot kits, additional build parts, team uniforms and supplies used at school and local community events. If two of our five FIRST teams progress on to championship tournaments, we pay more registration fees and all travel expenses for our students, coaches and chaperones.
We are do not receive financial support from the School District, which means we are only able to offer this amazing STEM program to our students because of the support we receive from team sponsorships and community donations. In order to further educate students interested in mechanical, electrical, and software engineering and to provide them with a team based learning environment, we need to continue renewing the financial support we receive from our community.
Here are some great ways you can help!
Promote your business by supporting one of our teams. Your tax deductible donation will make you the primary sponsor of one of the teams listed above. In exchange for your sponsorship, your company logo will be placed on Team uniforms, on the sponsorship section of our team website, on the robot itself, and in our pit at competitions. Additionally, you will be recognized on all our social media platforms. To make the biggest impact, check to see if your company will match donations or make donations for volunteer time.
