About the Power Hawks Robotics Club

The Power Hawks Robotics Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2009 and based in Edgewater, Maryland. The club is run by a Board of Directors that consist of volunteers with a wide range of professional backgrounds. The club’s mission is to inspire, support and mentor elementary to high school age youth in STEM and to equip them with the skills necessary to improve the world through competitive robotics. The Power Hawks Robotics Club implements its mission by acquiring funding in order to support for youth robotics teams based in Anne Arundel county, Maryland that participate in the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) robotics program.
