i tried to do it but couldnt get the money for a school team. but yeah i was interested. im goin off to college now and will take a course on robotices in the spring. Maybe i can mentor a team.

if anyone wants to start a team and needs financial advice, ask me, i learned a lot. (and did get an offer for 10 grand, albeit too late)

Something we did (it was our rookie year 2 years ago) was wrote letters to big corporations in town. We got our money in small pieces.. $500 here $1000 there, and some places that weren't doing well monetarily helped us with labor (engineers, mechanics, welders, etc.) If you're looking to mentor, try FIRST's website... they have a whole section on mentoring. Or you could just search for teams in your area, contact em, and ask em if they want help :D

Oh yeah.... and if you havn't ever been to one of the events, I suggest you do. It's GREAT!!! Walk around the pits and talk to teams... you might find they need more help than they let on.
