The Mission

ROBO Battle of the Minds has evolved to more than an annual robotics competition. It is a mission to involve kids of all ages along with their parents and community in an engaging hands-on learning environment focusing on, Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM).

Our approach to supporting education in Robotics, Engineering, and Design Thinking is based on an underlying foundation of communications as means to create and achieve in communities of our choosing.

We look to shape and support programs that open a bigger world of possibility to all. We strive to encourage creativity, team building and leadership in all that we do.

One of our first steps on this road is to take on working with programs we have found to be in line with our goals.

We proudly support FIRST in their mission to inspire kids by engaging them in learning life skills; that can make a difference in their future. Our corporate parent company sponsors FIRST LEGO League Jr., FIRST LEGO League, and FIRST Tech Challenge teams in our local area. Currently, we are also the proud production sponsor of ROBO Battle of the Minds – FIRST LEGO League state qualifying tournament for FIRST in Michigan.

In our home area, we also are proud to support Grand Rapids Public Schools Robotics. We are committed that every child has an opportunity to learn through exposure to hand on technology. Striving to foster community growth and student advancement through engineering design, team building, software development, and fun is a keystone of our outreach, and supporting GRPS Robotics is our privilege.

In addition to our robotics support, Our Express Create Grow division expands on this conversation through both personal and professional development by offering Engineering, Robotics and Technology camps for kids, as well as various classes for adults.

Check back often to keep up to date and see what opportunities for growth and fun await you and those you influence.
