Travel Fees

Charger Robotics' operating philosophy is not to profit from our members paying dues and fees.  Every reasonable effort is - and will continue to be - made to reduce the program cost to families.

Travel Fees will only be paid by members intending to travel to the event.  This helps the team cover the rest of their costs related to:

  • Hotel room rates

  • Transportation (i.e. Coach Bus) costs

  • Team meal on Friday

  • Etc.

The travel fee must be turned into Dave Woods and Morgan Swartzendruber no later than 6:00 PM Tuesday, 03/17/22.

 

Get others to pay your travel fees for you!

 

Charger Robotics provides opportunities for families to reduce their individual travel costs by over-achieving on individual fundraising targets.  It is recommended that students utilize these opportunities when possible.

  • Participants will have up to $2.00 removed from their travel fee for every Mini-Regional Raffle Ticket sold.

  • Participants who are instrumental in facilitating a financial sponsorship of Charger Robotics (as determined by Advisors) from local businesses, universities, industry partners, or other qualifying charitable organizations will have travel fees reduced by 20% of the sponsorship level.

Note:  Fundraisers and sponsorships reduce travel fees for the current season.  Once travel fees are reduced to zero, any additional funds generated will be used to cover Charger Robotics operating expenses and offset costs of strategic projects and initiatives.

Note: Travel Fees will NOT be reimbursed to families if they find the trip unsatisfactory, or if they are sent home early.

Behavior Expectations

Hamilton School District requirements

  • All of the rules in the Hamilton School District Student Handbook, and in the Hamilton School District Board Policies apply during this competition.

  • Use common sense, be respectful, and behave responsibly.

  • There are a lot of concurrent activities happening at these events.  Advisors and mentors will have a lower tolerance than they may have had during Build Season.

Disciplinary Action

  • The Advisors are empowered by the District to terminate the student's participation in events if the student violates any rule in the Student Handbook or Board Policies.

  • Under these circumstances, parents will be required to pick up the student - or - the student will be sent home immediately by a common carrier at the parent's expense.

  • Students may also be subject to further disciplinary action, up to and including suspension or expulsion from school.

 

WIMI Team

25 students and _ mentors will participate in the Wisconsin Regional.  The school bus seats up to 48 people, though some seats will be occupied with totes and supplies.  Students are expected to sit 2 to a seat.
