Support Our Team

Our team is made possible thanks to generous sponsors in our community. Through the resources they provide, our sponsors are helping inspire young people to become the next generation of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professionals. This support, including financial contributions, in-kind donations, products, or gifts, provides vital resources for the Dark Matter Community Team.

Your sponsorship will support Dark Matter’s efforts in obtaining necessary equipment and parts, paying competition and registration fees and most importantly, providing this exciting opportunity for the team members.
