FIRST Robotics

The FIRST (For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology) Robotics Competition is an exciting, multinational competition that teams professionals and young people to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way. The program is a life-changing, career-molding experience-and a lot of fun!

In 2006, Boston debuted its FIRST regional event with over 40 high school teams, mostly from Massachusetts, but also from out of state and even Brazil. Over the last four years the Boston Regional has become one of the most popular FIRST Robotics Competition events with attendance at the 2012 finals recorded at more than 6000 -- the most attended FRC regional competition for the second year running!

Free and Open to the Public! The 2013 event promises to be even bigger and better!

Unique, high-tech, sophisticated robots (& their student developers) will compete in a highly energized, rock concert atmosphere, surrounded by hundreds of volunteers, amazing people, and gracious corporate sponsors.
