FIRST®Overview FIRST® is an organization that hosts robotics competitions in four different programs for students K-12. The advantages of these contests are immense. One of the biggest benefits is that these competitions encourage important traits such as hard work, diligence, and confidence in students. Students develop many important skills like problem solving, tactical thinking, and teamwork Additionally, FIRST® robotics programs give participants beneficial hands-on experience with robots and the engineering design process. Finally, participation in FIRST® robotics provides those who compete an opportunity for many college scholarships.
Rohming Robots is a 4-H Project Club focused on FIRST® Tech Challenge robotics competition. It is comprised of eleven homeschooled high school and middle school students.
