We are Robotics @ Maryland, a by-students-for-students club that combines community, competition, and robots with the goal of preparing any UMD student for a career in the future of technology. This year, we are fundraising for our annual RoboSub Competition and need your help! Our goal this year is to bring as many new members as we can, to give them the incredible experience of fighting for the crown in an autonomous underwater challenge. By donating, you're supporting R@M's endeavors to make learning robotics both accessible and meaningful. Help R@M continue to grow!

What is R@M?

Robotics @ Maryland is a student-run organization dedicated to furthering robotics education through the hands-on development of multiple robotic systems. Every year, we send our autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to compete in the International RoboSub Competition in California. We are expanding the scope of our club to build a quadruped robot dog, incorporate a sister organization, Terraformers, to develop a Mars Rover, and create an onboarding program to incorporate new members into the complex field of robotics. R@M cultivates a holistic understanding of robotics, encompassing design, fabrication, assembly, and testing, equipping members for real-world engineering challenges.

 

Our team consists of all walks of life on campus, from freshmen to graduate students, from the Clark School to the Smith School of Business. As of today we have over 70 members working on a wide variety of projects, all built from scratch and encompassing almost all possible branches of the engineering design process, from ideation to formal testing.

Why should you donate?

R@M has had a major shift towards becoming more than just a competitive team, and has become the go-to space for any UMD student to learn robotics. Now, we're hoping to get our new members the opportunity to join the main team on its trip to California! By donating, you're helping R@M foster a passion for robotics in more students. 

Robotics is an exciting, emerging field that needs as much help as it can get to have a substantial impact on our modern day challenges. Consider donating to a club dedicated to revolutionizing robotics education, made entirely by UMD students!
