Individual Contributions (Donate Now)

We’ve made it easy for individuals to contribute to the program. Here’s how your donation can make a difference.


Your Impact


Lunch for a BEST Student

Most of us spend $10 on lunch and without blinking an eye. Why not skip lunch one day and donate that $10 to the education of a future scientist, engineer or mathematician?



A Weeks Worth of Lunches

Spending $10 for lunch is not uncommon for many of us. Why not skip lunch this week and donate your lunch money to inspire a student to study engineering, science and technology.



One Student's Participation

The average cost per participating student in the BEST Robotics program is less than $80. Your gift of $80 ensures that one more student can enjoy an incredible hands-on learning opportunity.



One Team's Consumable Kit

Each team receives a kit of consumable raw materials such as plywood, pvc, metals and plastics, miscellaneous hardware and electrical items, etc., which they use to make their robot. This "consumable kit" costs about $250. Your gift enables one team to have the raw materials needed to build their robot.



One Team’s Robot Control System

Each team receives a robot control system that provides the basic programming, radio control and motor/servo control for their robot.  We reuse these control system kits year after year to keep our costs low.  This "returnable kit" costs a hub about $600 per team and is expected to last at least 3 years. Your gift enables one team to have the control system needed to build their robot.



Approximate Cost for One Team’s Participation

The average annual cost for a hub to host a BEST contest is about $1000 per participating team.  Your donation would provide the money needed for consumable kit, robot control system, event materials/printing costs, etc. for one team’s participation.
