Be a Sponsor

The mission of Muncie/Delaware FIRST Robotics Team (MDR) is to provide a unique hands-on learning opportunity for Delaware County (and surrounding area) students to learn science technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills. Through the use of problem-solving, teamwork, time management, project development and management, students cultivate the interest, understand, and skills in STEM while learning teamwork and gracious professionalism.

Our team is a 501(c)3 organization, thus all donations are tax-deductible.

Why Sponsor?



This past year Team 1720 had great success, on and off the field.  Our Team participated in 8 competitions culminating in a 38th place world ranking out of 3000 teams. Our eyes have been opened to the opportunities that our students have through the FIRST programs. We are committed to passing this vision along to the students in East Central Indiana.

In order to have a culture of excellence, PhyXTGears is looking to build a sustaining relationship between our organization and community partners. For us, the robot is a vehicle toward building character through challenging the mind, working as a team, brainstorming, problem-solving, presenting and selling ideas, and collaborating toward a working solution. It is the ultimate hands-on STEM experience.
