What does FRC stand for?

“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 nearly $14.8 million in college scholarships
