Activities:

FIRST Robotics

Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate sport for the mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.” Under strict rules, limited resources and an intense six-week time limit, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST championship.

Benefits:

The positive impact on FIRST Robotics competition participants is gratifying and well-documented. Over 88 percent have more interest in doing well in school and 92 percent are more interested in attending college. 

FIRST Robotics Competition teams get to: 

  • Learn from professional engineers
  • Master STEM skills
  • Learn and use sophisticated software, hardware and power tools
  • Build and compete with a robot of their own design
  • Improve teamwork, interpersonal and communication skills
  • Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
  • Understand and practice Gracious Professionalism™
  • Earn a place at the FIRST Championship
  • Qualify for millions of dollars in college scholarships

VEX Robotics

In the VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championships in April.

Benefits:

VEX kits inspire students to become the problem solving heroes of tomorrow. The VEX system harnesses the excitement of building robots to immerse learners in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) concepts.
