Thank you!!

December 07, 2020

We have surpassed our ambitious goal of $6000! Thank you all for the support!


We are so excited to see all our work come together next semester into a competition-ready rover and could not have done so without your generous donations.

Choose a giving level


Houston, we have a donor!

A Donation of $5 - $49 will help our team purchase the base materials for the rover such as nuts, bolts, and aluminum.


Keep on Rovin' On

A donation of $50 - $99 will help us purchase the hardware and software used to build the rover. These include everything from the onboard GPS to carbon fiber tubing.


Blast Off

A donation of $100 - $499 will help us machine the rover. This year, we hope to augment our machining with industry-level gear manufacturing and innovative wire EDM techniques


Shoot for the Stars!

A donation of $500 - $999 will help us explore new brushless motors for the arm, an on-rover laboratory for science, and new computer vision hardware for autonomous navigation.


Out of this World!

A donation of $1000 - $1999 will help us fund our most ambitious projects, including a new harmonic drives system, a 100% carbon fiber arm, and GPU enhanced processing unit for AI navigation.


Space: The Final Frontier

A donation of over $2000 will ensure CMR's ability to succeed for years to come. This will help outfit our team with cutting edge technologies from the edges of material, computer, and biological sciences.
