The Iron Patriots depend on generous sponsors to help keep our team running. Our mission is to inspire and nurture students by teaching STEM and bringing together people of all skills and passions through the shared love of building robots. In the eight years of our team, we have been able to attend multiple PNW championships, and in 2016, we were able to attend and compete in the World Championships, held in St. Louis. None of that could have been accomplished without the help of our sponsors.
