FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC)

Welcome to the FIRST Robotics Competition!

  “The varsity sport for the mind,” FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Students get to:

  • Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware
  • Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
  • Earn a place in the World Championship
  • Qualify for over $12 million in college scholarships

FRC started it all.  It's the first of FIRST's programs.  Teams build 120 pound robots and compete on an impressive game court.  In order to push the envelope of learning and development, these teams need financial support for their robot kits, fields, travel to a multi-day competition.  They'll have a steep, intense learning curve.
