The Astromechs are teams made up of a mix of students from multiple public schools as well as home-schooled students. We would not be able to exist without the generous support of the community. This support enables our students to extend their education into hands-on, real world applications. A group of dedicated mentor-volunteers provide instruction and coaching, while the financial support of our sponsors enable us to participate in FIRST competitions. In order to collect and distribute funds we have formed the Kansas City Robotics Foundation.

The Kansas City Robotics Foundation is a non-profit corporation in the state of Missouri and an IRS recognized non-profit public charity. If you or your business are interested in support our teams, please contact us via our Contact Us page or you may donate directly to the foundation through PayPal by clicking the Donate button on the left side of this page.

All of our corporate sponsors will be recognized on our website in addition to any printed materials. Any company donating $1000 or more will have their company name or log on our team shirts.
