Robotics Team builds and competes in the FIRST FTC and FRC competition robotics seasons. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization created to motivate the youth of today to become science and technology leaders of tomorrow. To do so, FIRST engages youth in an exciting program where they can build technology, science, and engineering skills as well as life skills such as leadership and self-confidence. FIRST is the governing body of most robotics competitions internationally. Similar to other governing bodies like the GHSA, they determine rules for competition, team status, and design a new challenge each year in which teams will strive to compete.
