FIRST is a not-for-profit public organization for youth that uses robot challenges to build science and technology skills and interests. It is a character-driven program that also inspires self-confidence, leadership and life skills.
FIRST is impacting students and volunteers everywhere from the U.S. to China and even the Netherlands! In fact, more than 300,000 students will take part in FIRST events and have the opportunity to win more than $16 million in scholarships.
Students compete in one of two contests: the FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge. Competitors will raise funds, design a team brand, and build and program a robot using materials supplied to them by FIRST that will go head-to-head with other teams.
Be sure to meet these students, interact with their robots and learn how you can get involved in FIRST at Otronicon.
