What is FIRST?

FIRST Logo

The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique varsity sport of the mind designed to help high-school-aged young people discover how interesting and rewarding the life of engineers and researchers can be.

Robots?

The annual center point of our season is designing, prototyping, and building a functional robot. From basketballs to minibots, the challenges we face each year enable our team to bond and learn together.
