Are you trying to create a budget for your robotics program? Are you uncertain how much money to factor into your program? Then this article is for you. In this article, I reveal the Robotics Budget Template that I use to create robotics budgets for schools and organizations. But, first, let me introduce some expectations before we begin on budgeting.
Setting Realistic Expectations
While this may come across as a total shock to you, I want to be sure to set some realistic expectations before we start budgeting. I recommend setting aside between $3,000-$5,000 for your robotics program. If you're implementing a NEW program, I highly recommend having closer to that $5,000 mark. While this number may surprise you, I want you to be aware that robotics kits, computers, electronics, and professional training all cost money. Therefore, to be successful with your program, I recommend building your budget to meet this range.
Can you be successful with robotics on a $1,000 budget? Yes, possibly. You can check out the new LR Ed Training Bundle
