Welcome.       Our mission is to development Florida's future high tech work force.

Orlando FIRST Robotics Regional Competition started in 1999 with 28 teams at the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center. After four years of growth, the decision was made to move to the University Of Central Florida Arena in 2003. In previous years we have had teams from Canada, Germany and Great Britain. The event has become an international favorite.

This is being accomplished by a dedicated group of volunteers--parents, teachers, friends, engineers--who spend many hours each year to make FIRST a reality for all of the students. And what is particularly gratifying is to see that some of these active volunteers and role models were previously members of FIRST teams themselves who have gone on to study STEM subjects and have come back to help younger students. Without this level of participation, FIRST could not grow the way it has and the way it intends to in the future.
