About Us

While originally a coalition of robotics teams in Ashburn Virginia, Ashburn Robotics has grown to become a non profit (501(c)(3)) organization dedicated to the promotion of STEM education throughout our community, both through STEM outreach and our support of local FLL and FTC teams. Each of our teams is formed and managed by the parents of the children on that team. While each of our teams have their own unique identities they all share a common belief that kids discover more when they explore the world around them through a hands on approach to science and technology.

What We Do

Ashburn Robotics empowers young scientists and engineers through hands-on robotics programs in our local area and by providing open source resources online for children anywhere to use. We actively promote STEM education in our community through our robotics teams and community outreach events. We also provide training and materials to support parents and educators especially those involved in FIRST Lego League (FLL) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) as coaches and mentors.
