Our sponsors and partners have allowed us to bring what we learn in our classes into reality. We are given the ability to design a large scale rover implementing theory which can take from this team directly into the work force. Using industry standard software and machines we are able to broaden our horizons. As a McMaster student-run team, 100% of your funds go into various aspects of our rover.

We are thankful for Kodarin for giving us feedback and allowing us to learn design techniques to bring our designs from dreams to reality.
We can always rely on Shop3D for allowing us to prototype ideas and seeing how they will work in real life.
