Our team needs to pay $1000 as part of a $6000 registration for the first regional. Teams then elect to travel to a second regional which costs $4000 in registration plus expenses or if they qualify for the National competition in Atlanta, it is a $5000 registration plus travel. In addition our team must spend another $2000 to make our robot competitive plus other additional expenses for PR.
