FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC)

Each year, teams of high school students with the help of mentors work during a six-week period to build robots under 125 pounds (57 kg) to compete in the game of the year. Robots complete tasks such as scoring balls into goals, placing inner tubes onto racks, hanging on bars, and balancing robots on teeterboards. The game, along with the required set of tasks, changes annually. Click on each year’s game video to see how the game was played and the Robot Reveal Video for each year’s robot.
