Mouser is sponsoring the FIRST Robotics Competition Hall of Fame exhibit at the 2018 FIRST Championship events in Detroit and Houston. Altogether there will be more than 30,000 high school students globally expected to take part in the two four-day championship events.
For many years, the company has been a major supporter of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). The company sponsors these competitions at the local, regional and international levels and also donates electronic components to teams taking part.

We are proud to sponsor this exciting and enriching event.”
