We believe if students want to change the world, they can. The ingredients are simple: Them, and their education. With an education, students are unstoppable. They are the ones who will use mathematical concepts to explain the world around us. They are the ones who will use science to harness our planet’s resources. And they are the ones who will engineer tiny electronic ingredients that enable the next frontiers of smart robots, autonomous vehicles and space exploration. This is why we are hard at work to open their eyes to what they can be when they engineer the future.

Robotics competitions combine sports with STEM education in a fun, exciting way – so fun that teams may not even realize how much they’re learning! Students use teamwork, imagination and problem-solving to compete in technical challenges and develop learning skills they can apply to a future STEM career.
