What is FIRST?

Founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen, an inventor extraordinaire, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a not-for-profit, international, organization that motivates high school students to pursue education and career opportunities in STEM, all while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills in their innovative and infamous FIRST Family of Programs – FIRST LEGO League Jr., FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge, and FIRST Robotics Competition.

What is FIRST Robotics Competition?

Known as the “Ultimate Sport for the Mind”, FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigours of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of students are challenged to build and program industrial-size robots in order to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors.
