Kamen founded FIRST in 1989 to inspire an appreciation
of science and technology in young people. The FIRST
Robotics Competition (FRC) is an annual competition that
challenges high-school students – working alongside professional
Mentors – to design and build a robot of their own, and compete in
a ‘Sport for the Mind™’ that measures the effectiveness of each
robot, the power of teamwork and collaboration, and Gracious
Professionalism®. Students build and program their own
robots against a field of competitors and experience the
excitement of science, engineering, technology, and innovation.
