FIRST Robotics combines the excitement of sport with the precision of science and technology, making it one of the greatest high school robotics and STEM competitions in the country.
Not only is the competition a great experience for high schoolers, but it serves as a fun and unique way for parents and teachers to get students excited about learning. Students who participate in FIRST Robotics competitions have been surveyed and 90% have specific interest in taking a challenge math or science course, and 90% are more interested in attending college.
