FIRST Robotics: What's this all about?

It's a while until kickoff next year, but for anyone who stumbles across this blog, and is curious as to what this is all about, here goes:

Rowdy 13 is the name of my team's robot.

My team is 461.

461 is a member of FIRST.

FIRST stands for "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology".

FIRST challenges teams comprised of high schoolers and mentors across the world to make a robot defined by the game made the respective year.

Each year we have 6 weeks to imagine, design and build a robot.

We then move on to regional competitions against other teams-- other competitions include district competitions, state championships, and world championships.

Other aspects of FIRST include website design, animation, and outreach.
