What is FIRST Robotics?

According to Wikipedia, FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots that weigh up to 120 pounds (54 kg).” However, FRC is really more than just that. FIRST Robotics is an activity that encourages STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics), and the value of Gracious Professionalism. It brings teams together to encourage and develop real world skills and to have fun.

 

What Programming Language Do You Guys Use?

We use Java for both FRC and FTC.
