More about the FIRST Robotics League

“FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was created in 1989 to fuel the interest of science and engineering in young people. By encouraging students and mentors to work side-by-side in strategy-based challenges, FIRST inspires innovation, communication, leadership, and gracious professionalism. All fifty states now have FIRST Robotics teams, as do four other countries, making FIRST a truly international experience.
The “build season” of a FIRST Robotics challenge consists of 6 weeks of strategizing, designing, building, programming, and testing out a robot that is supposed to solve a specific problem.Mission Statement provided by the FIRST Robotics League website.
