FIRST

FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.” As its name implies, the organization aims to promote the values of science and engineering in the world’s youth. Every year since 1992 the FIRST Robotics Organization challenges students to design and build a robot to compete in a proposed game. This is a nationwide program in which teams design, build, test, and deliver a robot, in the allotted 42 days.
