    • Spreading Robotics "Fever" By Shrishti Kedia Ambassador Girl Scout Troop 70672
    • What is FIRST? ● For ● Inspiration and ● Recognition of ● Science and ● Technology A national organization with a mission to: "..inspire 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." FIRST lives for STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
    • There are four levels of robot competition in FIRST... ● Junior FIRST Lego League (6-9 years old) ● FIRST Lego League (9-14 years old) ● FIRST Tech Challenge (14-18 years old) ● FIRST Robotics Competition (14-18 years old)
    • Junior FIRST Lego League Also known as Jr. FLL ● 6-9 years old ● Use Mindstorm kit ● Brain- NXT brick ● Beginner programming- drag and drop ● Researching a real world problem- central theme ● Core Values
    • FIRST Lego League Also known as FLL ● 9-14 years old ● Same set-up as Jr. FLL ● We are a team. ● We do the work. Our coaches and mentors help us learn, but we find the answers ourselves. ● We share our experiences and discoveries with others. ● We are helpful, kind, and show respect when we work, play, and share. We call this Gracious Professionalism. ● We are all winners. ● We have fun! Core Values
    • High School Robotics FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) or FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) FRC: ● 120 pound robots ● Java programming ● Game ● No central theme ● Emphasis on grasp of FIRST ideals and engineering concepts
    • What is FIRST Tech Challenge(FTC)? Build an 18" x 18" x 18" robot primarily using: NXT Brick and programming Raw Materials
    • You can design, build, and present your very own robot using your skills in: ● Science ● Mathematics ● Problem solving ● Teamwork ● Friendly competition ● and many more...
    • Your robot may look like this... or this... or this...
    • It will be what you envision it to be.
    • Camp Schedule Day 1: Intro to kit and robotics Day 2: Build the robot (finish chassis) Day 3: Finish building the robot Day 4: Programming and start CAD **think about what you want your robot to do! Day 5: Finish CAD and present
