Igus Inc., East Providence, R.I., has given a resounding “yes” to students by being a sponsor of the BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology) Robotics Competition through its Y.E.S. (Young Engineers Support) Program.

Supported by BEST Robotics Inc., a non-profit organization in Dallas, the competition challenges middle and high-school students to design and build a radio-controlled robot with varying capabilities that change from year-to-year. The goal is to inspire students to pursue careers in engineering, science and technology through participation in sports-like, science, and engineering-based robotics competitions.

Igus will donate free machinery/motion control components in more than 700 consumable parts kits, which will be distributed to about 8,000 students.
