FIRST Robotics is the varsity Sport for the Mind.™ It combines all the excitement of sports with the demanding rigors of science and technology. Teams of students work together to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone their teamwork skills, and—under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits—build and program robots that perform prescribed tasks against competitors. It is as close to "real-world engineering" as students can find. Professional mentors volunteer their time and expertise to guide each team.
