What is the FIRST® Robotics Competition Challenge?

FIRST® Robotics Competition brought to you by FIRST® Washington, is designed for youths ages 14-18 and grades 9-12. Often referred to as a Sport for the Mind, FIRST® Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sports with the rigor of science and technology. With strict rules, limited resources and time, students are tasked with the challenge of creating an industrial-size robot to compete; they must build and program the robot to compete and cooperate with other teams. Teams must also work on raising funds, designing and maintaining a team “brand”, and improving teamwork skills. The students are mentored by professionals of many fields who volunteer their time and talents to help them succeed
