Each year Northern Force Team 172 relies on corporate contributions and sponsorships to help defray the many costs associated with maintaining the team as well as with participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Northern Force was the winner of the 2009 Chrysler Team Spirit Award and the 2009 “WPI Battle Cry” off-season competition. The level of work and success that these students have achieved would not be possible without corporate donations.
A big “thank you” goes out to all our sponsors for their generous support. We greatly appreciate your sponsorship this season! Click here for a list of our sponsors.
We are also indebted to our many talented mentors, who put in hundreds of hours of work each year to help make our team a success. Some work for our sponsors; some are former or current parents; and some just like robots. Thank you, mentors–we couldn’t do it without you. For a current mentor listing by subteam, click here.
