REC Foundation Partners

The REC Foundation is pleased to work with a number of organizations, both in and out of the classroom, who share our interest in providing students with hands-on, affordable, and sustainable robotics engineering programs that advance their interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Through our partnerships, we are uniquely positioned to reach students and educators with scholarship and grant opportunities, engage new students, educators, schools, and programs in our efforts, and participate in a variety of national and regional events. In return, our partners are also able to expand their reach and influence by communicating with more than 16,000 teams across 40 countries who compete in over 1,350 competition events each season. The REC Foundation proudly recognizes the following organizations and appreciates their continued support.
