Read what Tech Valley Leaders are saying about FIRST!

The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) is the premier engineering challenge for high school students. Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year.

On March 15-17, 2018, New York's Tech Valley region was again the home to a premier FRC event, located on the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute campus in the state-of-the-art East Campus Athletic Village Arena (ECAV). 31 teams, including competitors from Québec, Brazil and New York, gathered to compete in another exciting year of high-tech competition!
