The Event Experience

In FIRST Robotics Competition, students realize more than ever that FIRST is all about teamwork, sharing, helping others, and respect. Students develop a sense of accomplishment and confidence while they: 

  • collaborate and share ideas,
  • design and build custom robots,
  • engage with cutting edge technology,
  • creatively solve problems,
  • and have fun.

Season Update Regarding In-person Game Play
We opened our 2021 FIRST Robotics Competition season registration without in-person INFINITE RECHARGESM game play, based on ongoing global health conditions that restrict our community’s ability to travel and attend large gatherings. Although COVID-19 vaccines are starting to be administered, widespread distribution prior to this summer will be constrained by supply. Therefore, there will be no official in-person 2021 INFINITE RECHARGE game play events during the regular season, which ends in June. Where local conditions allow for safe gatherings, there may be unofficial in-person activities for FIRST Robotics Competition teams organized by local FIRST Program Delivery Partners. For more information, refer to the January 29 Inspire Blog post regarding in-person events.
