This is your chance. Connect with your next generation of employees and help them hone the skills your looking for. The future of St. Louis manufacturing begins here. St. Louis companies can help with design/build and support.



Volunteer your time and your talents. You’ll help students build a solid future. You’ll help St. Louis manufacturers build a solid industry. St. Louis volunteers will be needed for the BotsKC competition in April 2023.


BotsKC students learn every aspect of manufacturing: design, engineering, machining, assembly, testing and troubleshooting. Student teams commit 2-4 hours a week to manufacturing their bot. In essence, they receive on-the-job-training before they ever graduate from high school.

When you participate in BotsKC, you increase student awareness not only of the industry as a whole, but also student awareness of YOUR company. By participating in BotsKC, you get the first look at tomorrow’s talent pool. The investment is small, the payout is invaluable.
