Last Week to Donate!

April 27, 2019

We are into the last week of our Thousands Strong campaign! Help us finish the week out strong by getting us to 200% of our goal - we only have 5 days left.


Our Mercury robotics team is at competition today in Stillwater, OK. After that, all of our spring teams will have competed, and it's all because of gracious donations like these. We are going to be getting ready for finals this week, so even if you have donated, please help us out by sharing this page.


Thank you so much for making this campaign a success, we couldn't do it without your support.


Boomer Sooner!

Week 2 Complete!

April 13, 2019

We are almost halfway through our first ever Thousands Strong campaign, and we are at 114% of our initial goal! Thank you to everyone who has donated thus far - these funds will help us and future engineering students for years to come.

Our IEEE robotics team went to competition in Lafayette, LA last weekend and competed against some of the best teams in the region, finishing 6th place. You can help us take home the gold next year by sharing this page with your friends, family, OU alumni, and anyone who likes robots as we aim for 200% of our original goal. Let's make it happen!

Also, head over to our Instagram to check out pictures from the IEEE competition, and to see our leadership team for next year!

Week 1 Complete!

April 05, 2019

Hey everyone!

We are one week into this campaign and we have already met our goal! Your incredible support is going to help us make better robots next year, and we are very grateful.

Now that our initial goal is achieved, let's go for 200%! We think we can get there, and if we do, we will be able to take on a new competition next year. Think big (like battlebots big maybe?).

Thanks to all who have already donated, we can't do this without you. For getting to our goal so early, check out this video from our Mercury team!

Choose a giving level


Hold the robot together

Five dollars might not look like a lot, but its the small parts that make robotics possible! Wires, resistors, bolts, screws, and glue make up a robot, and holding everything together is really important. Some electronics boards can also be bought at this price, and they are the brains of the operation


Building Materials

Give a robot a body! With ten dollars, we can do a lot when it comes to buying structural materials like wood and metal. We can also buy some electronics and other accessories which will help us assemble a competition ready bot


Electronic Devices

Give our robots a brain! We need small computers and real-time devices like a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino to give robots the ability to do things. These computers make decisions about the robot's movements and also can give the robot an accurate picture of its environment, both necessary for winning competitions


Fancy Stuff

Some of our robots need high precision sensors or motors to get the job done, and that's where this donation level can help! LiDAR devices (used on self-driving cars) and high strength motors (for pushing other robots around) are a couple of examples of what can be bought for our bots to make them ten times better


Competition Fees

Let's go win something! In order to win, we need to register for competition. Some competitions are more expensive than others, and you can help us get there.


Robot from the Ground up

Build a robot! At this level we could build an entire robot from scratch and be competition ready.
