More than a Robot

Geared for high school students, the FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of a varsity sport with the real world experience of building a robot. The robot is more than a science project. Teams produce a commercial product that is designed, machined, programmed, and marketed to win. Along the way, students sample a variety of STEM fields to see where their true passion lies. Working side by side with industry mentors, FIRST gives students on-the-job experience and the chance to build skills not possible in a traditional classroom setting.
