Our team, Panther Robotics, enables students to practice STEM and leadership skills to become confident professionals.  We lead with Gracious Professionalism, sharing our spirit for STEM and fair play to our community of Paola, Kansas, and beyond.  


We build robots learning engineering and physics to overcome each new challenge in FIRST robotics.  Our team number, 1108, is recognized for our exemplary 18 years.  We welcome your support for our 2020 season, of FIRST Infinite Recharge, when we will compete at Greater KC and Denver Regionals in March.

Interested Sponsors?

We pursue all opportunities to help our students.  Sponsors, grants, and fundraising make our team possible.


If you are interested in sponsoring us, please contact David Green.  We take donations, including in-kind of materials, tools, food vouchers, services, etc.  Sponsors receive logo placement on various team promotions, including on the robot itself.  We are grateful for all support.

Interested Mentors?

Building a robot isn’t just engineering, it takes a team.  Not only of students, but of mentors that can provide experience and knowledge to back them. 


Mentors invest time, that varies by area of help and  time of year.  We welcome questions and visits to see whether there are areas that we can put you to helping.
