Current and Past Sponsors


In 2017, 3M Foundation graciously awarded the Lake Middle School Robotics Club an $8,500 grant to start our five teams, giving 75 students the opportunity to experience STEM in a big way!

Donaldson Foundation

In 2017, Donaldson Foundation awarded the Lake Middle School Robotics Club a $1,000 gift, allowing our club to purchase a competition field and game set! Used in practice and in STEM Outreach, this field has given the students the ability to see their robots in action outside of official competition.

Wipaire, Inc.

Wipaire, Inc. is the home of Wipline Floats, the pontoons that convert prop airplanes into float planes. They have graciously provided the robotics clubs and teams of the South Washington School District space in their Inver Grove Heights warehouse to build and practice with our bots!
