FIRST is about inspiring young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership. It is about changing the culture. It is about creating and growing a culture that supports a student’s development into becoming a productive member of society. Changing the culture, changing the public perception of the value of engineering and STEM learning is part of the job. Starting and growing FIRST though new team startup, training, educational and business partnerships are integral to the development of a FIRST team. Accomplishing this is no small task. It requires business planning and execution. It requires building a network of educational and business partnerships. It requires excellence in communications. Explaining the value of FIRST requires developing personal skills, soft skills, and the ability to communicate across a range of environments. Communicating the value of engineering in the design world is critical to advancing the public understanding of the need for technological literacy. Working to grow FIRST, and helping other teams succeed requires hard work and a commitment to ethics. Teams are expected to compete fiercely, yet graciously and professionally, without negative behaviors. Teams can help one another by leading and developing symposiums, workshops, and conferences. They can assist one another as a group and one on one through mentoring. The teams, individuals, and mentors that exhibit excellence and outstanding leadership are recognized by the Chairman’s, Dean’s List, and Woodie Flowers Awards. FIRST is more than robots. The robots are a vehicle for students to learn important life skills. Kids often come in not knowing what to expect of the program nor of themselves. They leave, even after the first season, with a vision, with confidence, and with a sense that they can create their own future". - Dean Kamen , Founder


FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION AWARDS THE HIGHEST TEAM AWARD The FIRST Chairman’s Award* is presented to the team that is judged to be an exemplary role model working to support the FIRST Core Values: Growing and Supporting FIRST; Communications Spreading the Message of FIRST; Helping Others; Team Spirit; Mentoring Other Teams; Team Sustainability; Strength of Educational, Corporate, & University Partnerships; Commitment to and the practice of the Ethics of Gracious Professionalism & Coopetition.

THE HIGHEST STUDENT AWARD The FIRST Dean’s List Award* shall include, but not be limited to a student’s: Demonstrated leadership and commitment to the ideals of FIRST; Effectiveness at increasing awareness of FIRST in the school and community; Interest in and passion for a long-term commitment to FIRST; Overall individual contribution to their team; Technical expertise and passion; Entrepreneurship and creativity; Ability to motivate and lead fellow team members.

THE HIGHEST MENTOR AWARD The Woodie Flowers Award* celebrates effective communication in the art and science of engineering and design. Dr. William Murphy founded this prestigious award in 1996 to recognize mentors who lead, inspire, and empower using excellent communication skills. High school students will describe how this mentor has given them the best understanding of the challenges, opportunities, and satisfaction involved in the discipline of engineering and design.

Gracious Professionalism is part of the ethos of FIRST. It's a way of doing things that encourages high quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community. With Gracious Professionalism, fierce competition and mutual gain are not separate notions. Gracious professionals learn and compete like crazy, but treat one another with respect and kindness in the process. They avoid treating anyone like losers. No chest thumping tough talk, but no sticky-sweet platitudes either. Knowledge, competition, and empathy are comfortably blended.

* Championship Eligible

FIRST® POWER UP, the 2018 FIRST® Robotics Competition game, finds our teams trapped in an 8bit video game! Teams use power cubes to defeat the boss.

Each three-team alliance has three ways to help defeat the boss: 1. Owning the scale or their switch. Ownership occurs when the scale or alliance’s switch is tipped in their favor. Robots collect and deliver power cubes to gain ownership.

2. Playing power ups. Alliances exchange power cubes for power ups. Power ups provide a timed advantage during the match. There are three power ups that can be played: Force, Boost, and Levitate.

3. Climbing the scale tower. Robots work together to climb the scale tower to face the boss.


Autonomous Period: Robots operate independently following programmed instructions for the first fifteen seconds of the match. Alliances score points by: Reaching their own autonomous line Gaining ownership of the scale or their switch

Teleoperated Period: Operators take control for the final two minutes and fifteen seconds of the match.

Alliances continue to score points by: •

Gaining ownership of the scale or their switch

Delivering power cubes to the alliance’s vault

Using power ups for a timed advantage

Parking on the scale platform or climbing the scale to face the boss The alliance with the highest score at the end of the match defeats the boss and wins.

Students have 45 days from learning what the engineering challenge is to deliver a finished robot.

During this period the team goes through a creative design and build process. Teams produce a robot that weighs up to 120 lbs; 150 lbs with battery and bumpers. There is no kit of parts in the traditional sense; no real instruction manual. At the competitions, teams play against each other in alliances. In one match 3 teams will work together. The next time those teams play they might be playing against those alliance partners they had played previously together. Each competition produces three finalists, multiple awards and recognizes the top performing rookie robot team.

ROBOT TECHNICAL & ARTISTIC DESIGN The students in the FIRST Robotics Competition receive at no cost professional versions of software for CAD (Computer Aided Design), Software Development, Data Analytics, Configuration Management, and Vision Processing. Students can choose to use these free professional tools to design their robot if they so desire. Judges evaluate the teams’ engineering design process and the teams’ implementation of the robot. The judges give consideration to the machine design, creativity, control systems, quality, and artistry.

Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. One in three young people will grow up without this critical asset. []

STEM Mentoring When a young person, even a gifted one, grows up without proximate living examples of what they may aspire to become – whether lawyer, scientist, artist, or leader in any realm – their goal remains abstract. Such models as appear in books or on the news, however inspiring or revered, are ultimately too remote to be real, let alone influential. But a role model in the flesh provides more than inspiration; their very existence is confirmation of possibilities one may have every reason to doubt, saying, “Yes, someone like me can do this.” [US2020]
