The Astromechs compete as a FIRST Tech Challenge team.

Located in Parkville, Missouri, we are dedicated to building, teaching and learning about technology and robotics in the Kansas City area and the world.

Award Winning Robotics

Our team maintains a record of high performance at the competitive level, and we are proud of what we have accomplished.    We have made it to the World Championships two years in a row, and won numerous awards on our way there each year.
