Competition Philosophy

"FIRST competitions aren’t about winners and losers. They are about bringing together ideas to realize the best solution. If you don’t realize this, that's the only time you’ve lost.”

FIRST

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.
