KRA was founded in (?2013?) by a group of robotics team mentors, in order to pursue sources of support that individual schools and teams aren't eligible for or cannot manage. (See the fundraising page for more on our ongoing projects.) It's also become an incubator for new classes and projects, and very active in publiczing and promoting robotics and STEM programs around the island. Finally, the KRA Board members actively recruit, advise and assist team mentors and project leaders.
In 2014 KRA became a United Way agency.
