The Astromechs are a community-based set of competitive robotics teams sponsored in part by the Kansas City Robotics Foundation. We have both a FIRST LEGO League (FLL) team (team #25094) and two FIRST Tech Challenge teams (team #3409 and #5227). The Astromechs teams accept both public-schooled and home-schooled students, usually by referral, for a limited number of spots on each team (membership numbers are limited by the rules of our competitive leagues).

Check out FIRST Tech Challenge Team #3409, their current team and season and their ten-year tradition of robotics and FIRST Tech excellence.
The Astromechs have been participating in FLL off and on since 2005. Check out our page to see the current team and some of our fun memories.
FTC Team 5227 is traditionally our "rookie" team. This year we have 6 ladies and one gentleman, all new to FTC but with varying levels of FIRST LEGO League experience. We were too busy in our pre-season activities to pause for a photo, but we'll get a group shot up here very soon!
