**FIRST Robotics Competition is not available in New Zealand however as of 2015 an FRC Regional event is being hosted in Sydney. Please contact us to discuss FRC participation.

Welcome to the FIRST Robotics Competition

 

"The varsity Sport for the Mind," FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.  It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.

Students get to:

  Learn from professional engineers
  Build and compete with a robot of their own design 
  Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware
  Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
  Earn a place in the World Championship
  Qualify for over $50 million in college scholarships
