Mouser sponsors Hall of Fame at FIRST Robotics Competition

April 15, 2022

Mouser Electronics Inc. is the exclusive sponsorship of the Hall of Fame at the FIRST Robotics Competition Championship, which will take place April 20–23 in Houston. The Hall of Fame showcases the previous winners of the FIRST Robotics Competition Chairman’s Award, which recognizes that year’s team that represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST. Mouser will also sponsor the FIRST Robotics Competition pits, where the teams set up camp to work on their robots during the competition.

Earlier this month, Mouser was a major presenting co-sponsor of the FIRST in Texas/UIL State Robotics Championships. Mouser also supports FIRST teams in its community, providing grants for local high school teams.

“Education has been a key facet of Mouser’s mission since our founding,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser’s senior vice president of marketing. “We are very excited to once again sponsor the FIRST Robotics Competition, which we have proudly supported for years. The organization gives students around the world a platform for innovation, a chance to learn valuable engineering skills, and an opportunity to build character and self-esteem.”

Since 2014, Mouser has been a supporter of FIRST, a student-serving nonprofit advancing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Mouser sponsors FIRST virtual and live competitions at the local, regional, state and international levels. Joining Mouser in the sponsorship is its manufacturer partner Analog Devices Inc.

Each FIRST Robotics Competition team receives access to a Kit of Parts system — including motors, batteries, a control system, a PC and a mix of automation components — with limited instructions. In a set amount of time, teams transform these various parts into working robots designed to perform specific tasks.
