Everybody has to be able to participate in a future that they want to live for. That’s what technology can do.
– Dean Kamen, Founder
The FIRST Robotics Competition was created in 1989 to raise interest in technology, science, and problem-solving amongst young people, nationwide.

FRC presents challenges which must be overcome each year. These challenges highlight possibilities because they’re given to us in such a way that lets our minds run wild. Each team is allowed to (with some exceptions) build anything they can dream of in order to overcome these obstacles.
