A Colossal Thank You
From our new home on Planet Earth to the depths of outer space, the Intimitrons from Area 51 would like to thank our sponsors for their generous contributions to our team and our cause. Without their support, we wouldn't be able to participate in competition, have access to advanced tools and equipment, or purchase materials to build study and learn. More importantly, we wouldn't have been able to reach dozens of young women in Calgary and provide them with the opportunity to explore STEM and build confidence in their abilities.

Other Ways to Support the Trons
In-kind sponsors are instrumental to our success by donating materials, workspace, equipment and most importantly their time. The expertise of professionals working in mechanical engineering, machining, software engineering, electrical engineering and more give us a head start on learning skills that prepare us for higher education.
If you have machine shop or electronics equipment that is collecting dust, or you would like to support the next generation of girls in STEM by volunteering your time and experience, please send us email at email@example.com.
Support from the community through our GoFundMe helps us pay for entrance fees and travel expenses. The more supporters we have, the more opportunities we have to learn and grow! Every $ counts.
The Trons need your support!
