Protocase is back as a sponsor
of the University Rover Challenge, and the deal for teams is even better! The $2,000 credit towards custom parts will count as an exemption to teams' $15,000 budget limit. Protocase will be hosting a webinar on November 24 to introduce teams to their capabilities, as well as the process to take advantage of the sponsorship. Any team may participate in the webinar, however only registered teams may take advantage of the sponsorship.
The webinar link will be sent to teams via the URC-Announce email list
only. The information below is provided by Protocase.
We are excited to work with you once again on your University Rover Challenge designs.
Protocase offers you the chance to make precision-fabricated parts and components for your rover, all finished professionally to your exact needs within 2-3 days. As part of our sponsorship of the University Rover Challenge, each registered team receives a $2,000 USD credit towards custom-manufactured parts, enclosures and components for your rover (as well as a 50 per cent discount for all orders exceeding $2,000). One thing to note that's different from the 2015 competition - the $2,000 manufacturing credit will NOT count towards your overall budget.
Join us for a webinar later this month that will explain our capabilities as a custom manufacturer, and our process for turning your design into reality. You will be able to ask questions at the end of the webinar as well.
Date: Tuesday, November 24th
Time: 2:30pm AST (Atlantic Standard Time; UTC/GMT - 4:00)
We will also be hosting another webinar in 2016 for any teams who have registered after the first webinar (day and time to be determined in the future).
To join the webinar, simply click on the corresponding link above. You will need to download an .exe file to access Go-To Webinar, so we recommend clicking on the link at least 10 minutes before the webinar’s start time.
With this year’s record number of teams, it’s best if each team joins in as a group on one or two computers. (The webinar is limited in the number of users that may connect at any given time.)
Following the second session, we will post a full recording of the webinar on our website.
