Our sponsors

Without the support of our sponsors we would not have the manufacturing and opportunities that enable us to participate with our peers in events that call for professionalism, cooperation, and comradery. Nor would we be able to continue honing our passion for STEAM.


Without these wonderful sponsors we would not be able to keep our lights on, building warm, and machines running! If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, click the button to the right!
