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.
We can't do it without our volunteers and sponsors.
