Robot Builds - Funding for EV3 bricks

EV3 bricks form the essential basis of all Junior and Intermediate robot builds. In July 2020 Somerville House Robotics had 72 EV3 bricks that functioned. 

At least ten new bricks should be bought each year at a cost of $5,220 to maintain our current program.
