Due to the global pandemic, we were not able to host MRDC 2020. However, our committee has been putting in countless hours of work to create an even more spectacular competition in 2021. With your support, we are confident MRDC 2021 will be the most memorable competition and represent our ability to move forward and succeed even when the challenges are great.

The main beneficiaries of the funds we receive are the students we host the competition for. Every competitor that participates is eager to learn and improve upon his or her own technical and interpersonal skills. The committee is devoted to ensuring the success of this competition because we believe in the impact this kind of competition has on STEM students and their development.

Each year the committee uses donor funds to design and construct the competition course. Previous expenses included safety equipment, transportation, building materials, and hardware, all of which require a significant financial commitment, and this year is no exception. 

By deciding to support and fund the Midwestern Robotics Design Competition, you are investing in the future. The students that participate in this competition are going to become leading experts in their fields with your support. The MRDC is a unique robotics competition. It was one of the first competitions of its kind 31 years ago and has, since then, provided an essential environment to foster growth and progress in our nation’s youth.
