FIRST Robotics Team
For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology
Dubbed the "varsity sport for the mind", FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limits resources, and time limits, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team brand, hone teamwork skills, and build and program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It's as close to "real world" engineering that a student can get. Volunteer mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
High school students get to:
learn from professional engineers
build and compete with a robot of their own design
learn and use sophisticated hardware and software
be exposed to design, project management, programming, teamwork, strategic thinking, and coopertition
earn a place in the championship
qualify for $80 million in college scholarships.
