All active G3 team members are required to pay a $500 participation fee each year.  You may choose to pay $250 each semester. Please contact Dr. Ogden if you need to apply for a scholarship (limited # available). 

The Team Member fee covers the following expenses (Travel fees NOT included):

  • Liability Insurance and program operations
  • Shop materials and supplies, such as safety classes, computer software, and tools
  • Parts to build the robot(s), drones, and access to equipment
  • Team t-shirt and two polo shirts (competition uniforms) for new members

After a thorough review of our financial records, we discovered our program costs (not including travel) come to approximately $1000 per student, per year. The board of directors works to help offset these costs through APS funding, grants, and sponsorships. Grants are more difficult to obtain partially due to the loss of title 1 funding and changing school demographics. We've restructured our budget accordingly. No student will be denied participation for an inability to pay fees -- please contact Dr. Ogden if this is a concern and if you would like to apply for a scholarship.

Thanks to corporate Sponsors like GE and Lockheed Martin most of our tournament fees are covered. This year, APS is helping with transportation costs and teacher stipends through CTAE funding. Donations from our local business sponsors, like MailChimp, G3 families, and friends help supplement travel, scholarships, and other program costs.
