Help Promote the State Robotics Initiative Grant

Here are ways you can help promote the robotics grant. 

  1. Check out the Robot Map to see what schools in your area are eligible for the 1st year robotics grant. 

  2. Contact the schools (teachers or prinicpals) in your area who are eligible for the grant. See below for a sample email to use. 

  3. Follow-up your email with a phone call to help any answers they may have about becoming a Robotics Educator - interested teachers would love to hear first hand from a now "veteran" robotics educator. 

  4. Print out our SRI promotional flyer and post in the front office and teacher break rooms of the eligible schools in your area. Link to our Flyer
  5. If a new team signs up because of your efforts please fill out the Awareness Grant Application

Subject Line: Robotics Grant for your School

Dear (Fill in name),

I wanted to share a robotics grant that our school applied for and received last year. The TechPoint Foundation for Youth Robotics Grant pays for a robotics kit, team registration and training for your teachers involved.

We were hesitant at first to apply for the grant since our teachers did not know anything about robotics but after the training that TechPoint Foundation for Youth provided, and the support we received throughout our 1st year, we are so happy we started a robotics program at our school! Our students had an incredible experience and I would love to pass this along to your school. I would be more than happy to help you in anyway we can throughout the process.

Here is a link to the website that explains more about the robotics grant and how to apply. www.techpointyouth.org/robots/

Please feel free to reach out the TechPoint Foundation for Youth directly at Robotgrant@techpointyouth.org with questions or I could even help answer your questions about starting a robotics team.  

Thank you for consideration,
