HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. supports teams

Team Funding

In cooperation with committed companies, we would like to enable even more children and young people to participate in FIRST LEGO League. In the 2021/22 season, there are many funding offers - for teams taking part for the first time, but also for teams that have already gained their first FIRST LEGO League experience.

Many thanks to all supporting companies!

Funding scope and application

Interested teams can choose a grant from the various offers and apply for it.

To apply, please first take a look at this website to see exactly what the various conditions and scopes of funding look like. If you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail: info@hands-on-technology.org.

Fill out the application form and send it to us via e-mail. We will inform all teams whether they will be funded.

Please note that we need a donation receipt from you within four weeks of receiving the funding, otherwise you will be invoiced for the material and participation.
