About RIM

FIRST Lego League

Our mission is to inspire youth to gain a new perspective on science and technology by providing opportunities and resources for robotics programs.

Founded in 2012, the Robotics Institute of Maine (RIM) is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our goal is to ignite a passion in Maine students to consider STEM-based careers through the development of educational robotics programs.

Why robotics? Robotics programs offer a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience which prepares students for technology careers. Within the structure of a friendly competition, students develop several life-long skills.

RIM provides funding and support to schools and robotics teams to encourage new robotics programs and sustain current ones. Robotics continues to grow because of the generous support from Maine-based companies and grants for RIM.
