Building our robot alone requires a budget of at least $6,000, not including funding for our regional competitions and invitational scrimmages. The POBots are a 501(c)(3), and we get most of our funding through businesses in the greater Long Island area. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated! Email us at


If you're a high school student at POBJFK, we'd love to have you! Hop on down to room 168A (the tech shop) and talk to us about becoming a POBot.
