Robotics Teams

KC BANCS and FIRST

KC Robotics Teams logo

In striving to engage high school students with disabilities in STEM fields, KC BANCS has started to provide sponsorships to inclusive FIRST Robotics teams. Pathways to careers in STEM fields don't start in college, when students choose their majors, but in high school where interest is piqued.

Sponsorships

Help KC BANCS build accessible pathways to careers in STEM. We are proud to have sponsored the following six FIRST Robotics teams for the 2010-2011 year and look forward to sponsoring more teams in 2011-2012!
