UPDATE 11 juli 2017: Wij zijn nog op zoek naar financiering van een van onze teamleden, Lucas, om mee te kunnen gaan naar Japan. Alle kleine beetjes zijn welkom. Doneren kan via de GoFundMe pagina ( of via onze rekeningnummer: NL87ABNA0408795794 t.n.v. Lyceum Kralingen Rotterdam. Alvast bedankt!

Hello there! Thanks for taking a look at our page. We are a young (age 13 to 19) group of robotics engineers called Team Roboticus and we need your help.

(Doneer nu ook via internetbankieren: zie gegevens onderin)!

Roboticus has been around since 2008 and we've participated in (and won) many competitions since then. Usually we participate in the RoboCup and FirstLegoLeague. We have added a full list of achievements down below.

Recently we got second place in a local Robotics competition in Delft. This earned us a spot in the RoboCup of 2017 in Nagoya, Japan. You'll find a link to their website and promotional video below. In the competition we will be focusing on building a soccer team consisting of robots.

Unfortunately, we do not have the funds to cover transportation cost to and in Japan, accommodation and all things related to the competition itself. Usually the school we're connected to covers these costs, but this trip goes way over their current budget as well. Ideally we'd like to bring our entire team to Japan, but due to immense costs this would bring we would be happy to just raise enough for our core team to make it there.

So this brings us here. We're still in talks with several companies to get us a sponsorship that can potentially bring us to Japan as well. Since we aren't too sure about finding one, we are trying to focus some of our attention on this page as well. If we do find a sponsor we would like to offer a spot for their logo's on our t-shirts and our main sponsor will get a spot on our robot's mainframe.

If you'd like you can also get a spot on our t-shirts or robots. For the t-shirts we would like to see a minimum donation of 2000 EUR and whoever donates the largest amount will be on the robots.

The competition is on the 27th of july. We are aiming to get at least some of our goal a bit earlier so we can arrange plane tickets. Also, please do not be intimidated by the goal we set for this fundraiser. We set it at that number because at that point we can guarantee to cover all the costs that come with bringing all of our members to Japan. We could technically work with a much smaller number so all donations are welcome.

If you decide do to donate please understand that you're not only giving us tickets to Japan, but you're also giving  a young team of ambitious engineers a chance at a once in a lifetime opportunity as well as amazing experiences for their future. We will gladly accept any amount. Thank you for your help!

We also accept other forms of payment and will keep you guys updated about how much we've collected.
