FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, is a fantastic program that gives students hands-on experience in engineering and technology. Students develop skills with machinery; generate ideas for solving difficult problems; produce results under time pressure; work together as a team; and learn “gracious professionalism” as they compete with teams from other schools.
Every January, FIRST releases a new challenge and gives every team six weeks to design, build, test, and ship a competition-ready robot. Team 2122 has been taking on the challenges and building robots to meet them every year since 2007.
