FIRST Robotics Competition expands to two regional competitions
In 2018, Kansas City will expand to TWO regional FIRST Robotics Competition championships, on back-to-back weekends at Metropolitan Community College-Business & Technology Campus.
The Heartland Regional takes place March 9-11, followed by the Greater Kansas City Regional on March 15-17. Each event will include a minimum of 48 teams. With expanded competitions and game play comes the need for more volunteers.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about FIRST, robotics in general or just want to share your support for STEM education in the community, now is your time. Check out the details here.

Midwest Regional 3D Printing Symposium
Stereolithography or Additive Manufacturing, better known as 3D Printing, is a rapidly evolving technology that is becoming ubiquitous in both industry and consumer markets. As 3D Printing technologies continue to improve and costs dramatically decline, 3D Printing is becoming more accessible for leaders in education, research, and healthcare. An organizational platform is needed to bring community members in various disciplines together in the Midwest.
The Midwest Regional 3D Printing Symposium is an opportunity to start this conversation in the extended Kansas City area about utilizing 3D Printing Technologies collectively. We invite you to join us on Friday, February 16th, 2018 at the University of Kansas Medical Center to take part in discussing cooperative efforts to leverage 3D Printing for enriching education, research, and healthcare in the Midwest Region.
