Team 2404 FIRST Robotics Kickoff for Teens (free)

Event Details

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. In 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
  • Earn a place at the FIRST Championship
  • Qualify for millions of dollars in college scholarships
