Read what Tech Valley Leaders are saying about FIRST!

The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) is the premier engineering challenge for high school students. Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year.

On March 17-19, 2016, New York's Tech Valley region will once again be home to premier a FRC event, located on the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute campus in the state-of-the-art East Campus Athletic Village Arena (ECAV). 34 teams, including competitors from Canada, China, The Netherlands, New York, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Hawaii will gather to compete in another exciting year of high-tech competition!
