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 six weeks, with the guidance of adult Mentors, your team will design, build, program and test your robot to meet the season’s challenge. As part of an FRC 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 $20 million in college scholarships
