igus celebrates National Robotics Week with Young Engineers Support (YES) program

April 19, 2017 - Since 2005, igus has been a supplier sponsor of a variety of student robotics and engineering competitions.  Now, as a part of their YES (Young Engineers Support) Program, they are celebrating National Robotics Week with their continued support of thousands of student engineers around the world.

The igus YES Program was founded as a way to foster the design ideas of students with a passion for engineering. With technical support and product donations, the YES Program is open to all students, from elementary to PHD, as well as their professors and mentors.

Since the inception of YES, igus has donated products to tens of thousands of students worldwide for projects including a record-setting solar car, a full scale submarine, a 3D pizza printer, and countless others. This year alone, igus has donated over 3,500 kits to students participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition, as well as providing support to other competitions including BEST, Botball, NASA Robotic Mining Competition, Formula SAE, and more.
