Competition Manuel can be found Here

Take dedicated, enthusiastic students, teachers, engineers and other professionals, add six weeks for design and fabrication and you get a wide range of amazing machines that are competition ready.

The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an exciting program that assimilates teams, sponsors, colleges and technical professionals with high school students to develop their solution to a prescribed engineering challenge in a competitive game environment. The competitions, combine the practical application of science and technology with the fun, intense energy and excitement of a championship-sporting event. The program results in life-changing, career molding experiences for its participants and is a lot of fun.

In 2012, FRC will reach nearly 55,000 students representing approximately 2,300 teams. FRC teams come from every state in the United States, as well as from Australia, Bosnia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, the Domincan Republic, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. FRC has become an international program and is continuously growing. FRC teams will participate in 52 Regional Competitions, 9 Michigan District Events, the Michigan State Championship, 5 Mid-Atlantic Robotics District Events, and the MAR Region Championship. Approximately 300+ deserving teams will qualify to go to the FIRST Championship at The Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, MO.

This year’s challenge will be presented at the 2012 FRC Kickoff on Saturday, January 7, 2012. At the Kickoff event, all teams:

see the 2012 game field for the first time;
learn about the 2012 game rules and regulations; and
receive a Kit of Parts (KOP). The KOP includes, but is certainly not limited to, motors, sensors, chassis hardware, transmissions, software packages, control systems and batteries. The intent of the kit is to provide a level starting point for all teams.
