About FIRST Challenges

Every September, FIRST releases a sequence of challenges that the robot must accomplish within a 2 minute period. The boys then have a little over a month to design, build, and code their bot out of everyday materials with a little ingenuity. Success in this competition requires the boys to cooperate effectively, developing skills in teamwork, brainstorming, coding, manufacturing, and design.
