The Youth Robotics and STEM Education Foundation creates outreach and educational opportunities introducing robotics and technology

to thousands of students per year at events throughout the Midwest.

Additionally, the foundation is a robust supporter of PWNAGE 2451, a champion-caliber FIRST Robotics team that teaches young adults the career skills they need to succeed in our technology driven world.

PWNAGE gives teens the opportunity to work with mentors in a safe, inclusive, hands-on environment.

"This is an exciting place to pursue my interest in STEM and learn things not offered in school. It's a collaborative, educational, and multidisciplinary experience."

-Anne R (Class of 2024)

Electrical Lead

"If I could pinpoint one thing that got me to where I now, it would be robotics.  Being on PWNAGE gave me a taste of STEM in a unique, exciting way!  I was able to take away many skills like teamwork and problem solving that help me every day."

- Owen F (Class of 2021)

University of Pennsylvania Student

"PWNAGE and FIRST Robotics exposed me to engineering development opportunities while in high school. Through these challenges I figured out that I wanted to pursue a career as a mechanical engineer. Without PWNAGE and FIRST, I doubt I would have achieved the success I have in my career."

- Peter G (Class of 2017)

Engineer, Hexbug
