WHAT IS FRC?

FRC gives high school students and their adult mentors the opportunity to work and create together to solve a common problem. Teams of students are challenged to design, build, and program robots and compete for awards, while they also create a team identity, raise funds, hone teamwork skills, and advance respect and appreciation for STEM within the local community.

Beyond game play itself, students are rewarded by team achievements – in robot design and programming, demonstrating community outreach, Gracious Professionalism®, and the ability to overcome obstacles. Winning is always secondary to the quality of the overall experience.

FRC students have just 8 weeks from learning the season's game challenge to competing, yet their hard work extends year-round. They embrace FIRST's Core Values to serve their communities and expand STEM opportunities. From coding summer camps to mentoring FLL students and organizing workshops, they apply their knowledge to better our world, embodying the true purpose of education.

Beyond game play itself, students are rewarded by team achievements – in robot design and programming, demonstrating community outreach, Gracious Professionalism®, and the ability to overcome obstacles. Winning is always secondary to the quality of the overall experience.

Their season’s work culminates with the chance of advancing to the FIRST Championship. 22 FRC teams from Washington and Oregon will move on to compete in Houston Texas amog 600+ teams from around  the WORLD!
