FIRST Robotics is an internationally recognized event where teams from all over the world build robots to fit a predetermined challenge, competition, or event. Each year the event or task the robot must perform changes and differs. Alliances must be formed between teams. Students and even teachers learn how to market themselves, to solve problems in a creative way, and how to formulate plans in a team-based environment.
FIRST Robotics is more than just teaching kids how to build a robot. It’s about teaching perseverance, dedication, commitment, gracious professionalism, and cooperation. When you leave a FIRST Robotics team, you are leaving with skills that you will treasure for a lifetime, friendships and unbreakable bonds that teach you how to connect with other people, and of course, practical, real world skills that will be useful to anyone, anywhere at any given time.
