What is FRC?
FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition), which is the most comprehensive of the competitions organized by FIRST, is a robotics competition that combines the rigor and challenge of science and technology with the excitement of sports (also defined by high school students as “the hardest entertainment you can encounter”). They need to find support and create a “brand” unique to them. Teams also throw balls into the basket, throw discs, etc. in the six-week process for robot construction, program an industrial robot and a suitable software. These robots aim to perform tasks in the competition area, approximately the size of a basketball court.
