MISSION

Our mission is to inspire young people to pursue further studies and careers in the field of science, technology and engineering.  Our vision is of a world which celebrates success in science, technology and engineering and in which young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes.  We pursue our mission primarily through running robotics competitions for school-age students at the elementary, junior high school and senior high school level.

 

 

WHAT IS FRC?

The FIRST Robotics Competition challenges teams of young people and their mentors to solve a common problem in a six-week timeframe using a standard “kit of parts” and a common set of rules. Teams build robots from the parts and compete in games designed by Dean Kamen, Dr. Woodie Flowers, and a committee of engineers and other professionals.

FIRST redefines winning for these students by rewarding teams for excellence in design, demonstrated team spirit, gracious professionalism and maturity, and the ability to overcome obstacles. Scoring the most points is a secondary goal. Winning means building partnerships that last.
