What is FIRST Robotics?

We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. Team members call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.” Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense build season, teams are challenged to build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult challenge against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get.

Interested in Joining our Team for 2020?

We will be holding an Interest Meeting on September 28 at 10am in our shop at Woodbridge High School. We have practice scheduled until 3pm that day that prospective new members are welcome to stay for and learn about the team and get involved.
