MHR involves private, public, and homeschooled students from across the Kansas City Metro; dedicated to the building of youth in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics; preparing them to be leaders in their chosen industry.
Since 2006, MHR has fostered learning and academic excellence with robotics competition. Our intent is to give real-world engineering experience, develop teamwork skills and assist other competitors to reinforce our team’s core values: character, integrity and teamwork.
FIRST Robotics Competition: KC Regional Semi-Finalist 2015 & KC Regional Quarter-Finalist 2016; BEST Robotics Competition: Nat’l Champions 2010, Regional BEST Award 2016, Local BEST Award 2015-2016; FIRST Lego League: Qualifying Tournament Winner 2015
Many of MHR’s alumni have pursued degrees and careers in science-related fields. Serving our team as mentors, they are highly valued for their understanding of robotic competition and their enthusiasm to give back to our program.
Parents and mentors bring a blend of talents and experiences to assist and coach our students through the variety of challenges presented by each new competition. Our board handles administrative responsibilities as MHR is not part of a traditional school program.
MHR is a 501(c)(3), supported by its members and generous donations from community partners. We continually seek sponsorships from businesses, as well as pursue grant opportunities. The board, coaches, mentors and other support staff are unpaid volunteers.
