What is FIRST?
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a program for students of all ages to gain experience in science, technology, and robotics which helps to prepare them for the future. FIRST offers 3 flagship programs which all challenge students to develop robots specifically designed to complete a task provided at the beginning of the season.
Competitions and Seasonal events
While the club lasts all year long, we don't actualy start building our robot until January when we are given the rules and objectives for the competition. Then the 8 week build period starts and we build our robot to the critera of the challenge given by FIRST robotics.
Wingspan is based out of Viera high school and it supports, inspires, and motivates it's students everyday.
