An Introduction to FIRST Robotics

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an international organization that promotes education in engineering, creativity, and leadership skills for young people. We are team number 935 of almost 4,000 teams in the FIRST Robotics Competition league. Every year at the beginning of January, FIRST announces the new game and its challenges at Kickoff, and we get the next two months to design, build, and program a winning robot.
