About

The excitement of sports + the rigors of science and technology.

 

WE CALL IT

The Ultimate Sport for the Mind

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS CALL IT

“The hardest fun you’ll ever have. “

FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION

 

Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded 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. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.
