FIRST Robotics: For Inspiration and Recognition of  Science and Technology

FIRST, which stands for “For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology,” is a nonprofit organization founded by Dean Kamen in 1989. Structured around a high-school robotics competition, the FIRST Robotics Competition is much more than just a competition, combining gracious professionalism with technology to create an environment that fosters a deeper appreciation for science and technology. Professional mentors, as well as college students, partner with teams to teach students valuable engineering and professional skills while helping the team succeed. Furthermore, FIRST teams are encouraged to spread the word to increase appreciation of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math in society as a whole. In addition to the FIRST Robotics Competition, FIRST sponsors the FIRST Tech Challenge, designed for high school teams that may not have the resources to participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition. For younger students, FIRST has developed the FIRST Lego League.

Our Program (What we do):

We are a student-run, mentor-guided, high school robotics team comprised of students and community volunteers from all over the William S. Hart High School District. We are also a FRC team part of the non-profit organization FIRST. Our team started back in 2000, and is currently housed in West Ranch High School. As a district-wide team, any student that attends a high school within our district may join our team. Students must be in high school to attend competitions, but we welcome Jr. High Students to come to our meetings to learn more about robotics.
