What is the FIRST Robotics Competition?

The hardest fun you’ll ever have! Combine the excitement of sports, science and technology, business management, marketing, and fundraising while competing with your teammates in a unique varsity Sport for the Mind™.  In just a few weeks, with the guidance of adult Mentors, your team will design, build, program, and test your robot to meet the season’s challenge.

  • Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware
  • Compete and cooperate in alliances and competitions
  • Earn a place in the World Championship
  • Qualify for over $80 million in college scholarships
