FIRST Robotics Team #6545

     ‚Äč 

The FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of a varsity sport with hands-on training in science and technology to help high school students discover a rewarding career in engineering or technology.

Remote-controlled robots, piloted by students and cheered on by screaming fans, go head-to-head in short games on the floor of a sports arena, battling it out to earn points during a two-minute round.

FIRST robotics is made possible through the use of start-up grants and school funds. The program’s purpose is to foster a partnership between local industry and public schools, while providing students with opportunities to explore engineering and technological careers. Through FIRST robotics students learn programming, fabrication, strategy, problem solving, team building, and communication skills. Visit the FIRST website for more information. www.usfirst.org/ftc
