FIRST'S MISSION STATEMENT

"Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership."

 

The FIRST Robotics Competition

The varsity Sport for the MindTM, FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.  It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.

 

Students get to:

  Learn from professional engineers
  Build and compete with a robot of their own design  

  Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware
  Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
  Earn a place in the World Championship
  Qualify for over $19 million in college scholarships
