The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) for Grades 9-12 (ages 14 to 18) is an annual competition
that helps young people discover the rewards and excitement of education and careers in science,
engineering, and technology. FRC challenges high-school-aged students – working with professional
Mentors – to design and build a robot, and compete in high-intensity events that reward the
effectiveness of each robot, the power of team strategy and collaboration, and the determination of
students. In 1992, the initial FIRST Robotics Competition took place with 28 teams in a high school
gym in New Hampshire. In 2014, the largest-ever FRC season is expected to include more than 2,700
teams from 17 countries competing in 54 Regional events, 4 Qualifying Championships, 40 District
Competitions, and the FIRST Championship at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, April 24-26,
2014.
