What is FIRST FRC

FIRST® was founded by Dean Kamen, in 1989 with the assistance of Woodie Flowers.

Observing the number of kids, especially of the female gender, who plan a career in science

and technology is so low; Dean Kamen took action and saw a chance in conjoining the

enthusiasm of sports competitions and science. Kamen decided that such activity should be

nonobligatory and apart from any academic course. He aimed to create an environment free

of judgement that is based on teamwork. Dean Kamen is proud of his work of inventing such society; as a consequence, he expects to witness great technological advancements in the near future. For more information please visit http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc.
