FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a non-profit organization encouraging kids in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Under strict time limitations, high school students design and build 120-pound robots that compete on a playing field to complete tasks. Students program and test their machines using skills in engineering, coding, and design. Teams also develop business and marketing plans, as well as outreach initiatives to fundraise and engage their local community.
Students have worked hard to build, program and test their machines using skills in engineering, coding, and design. Teams also developed business and marketing plans, as well as outreach initiatives including fundraising and community engagement. Teams with the highest rankings and awards will move onto the District Championships at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. Rankings at this Championship will decide who moves onto the FRC World Championship in Houston, TX.
This year, FIRST teams will address today’s global challenges related to United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #9, focused on building resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and fostering innovation. By encouraging FIRST participants to think about future transportation sustainability, we’re also empowering them to be the next generation of leaders and innovators, tackling the world’s toughest challenges.
