FIRST: For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology

“To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.”

The FIRST Robotics Competition

The FIRST Robotics Competition is a “varsity sport” for the mind. The FRC challenges high school students to build a robot over an intense six week build season. The teams learn from mentors, use a standard ‘kit of parts’ sent to every team, and write their own websites, create animated videos, mentor other teams, and most of all impact their communities while spreading the message of FIRST.
