What does it mean to be an organizational partner? Vermont Robotics Organizational Partners are individuals who are committed to offering opportunities for Vermont youth to broaden their experience and expertise in robotics education, team building, "co-opertition", problem solving, and maker skills. Partners provide volunteer, financial, and moral support by underwriting and guiding the overall program and its competitions.
