FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, was founded by inventor Dean Kamen and MIT professor Dr. Woodie Flowers in 1992 to inspire young people’s interest and participation in science and technology, and to lead them into STEM career fields. Teams spent six weeks building a 120 lb. robot to compete in this year’s game, Ultimate Ascent.
Teams are challenged to build a robot that can shoot frisbees into ten foot high goals both autonomously, and while under the control of human drivers. At the end of the match, teams receive additional points if their robot can climb a 90 inch-tall pyramid structure near the center of the field.
