FIRST
Robotics

Invite you to an Evening of Robotics




On Wednesday evening August 28
th, JHU/APL, ASME
and

FIRST
,
“For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and
Technology”
, (an organization dedicated to increasing
awareness of science and technology and encouraging students
to pursue careers in technical fields), invite you to an evening
of discussion and de
monstration of robotics. If you are
interested in starting a robotics club for your elementary,
middle school, or high school age child, or being a mentor or
sponsor, you will not want to miss this seminar.


For kids ages 9 to 14,
FIRST

LEGO

League (FLL)
is an
exciting and fun international robotics program that ignites an
enthusiasm for discovery, science, and technology. Each year
FLL teams embark on an adventurous challenge based on
current, real
-
world issues and then build and compete with
robots made
from Legos and Lego Mindstorm controller kits.
The robots are about the size of a
shoe

box
and
receive
programming
from a laptop computer.


The
FIRST
Robotics Competition (FRC) and the
FIRST
Tech
Challenge (FTC) are
designed for
high
-
school
-
aged students
to

discover how interesting and rewarding the life of engineers
and scientists can be. It challenges teams of students to solve
a common problem
using a standard parts and
rules. Teams
build microwave oven size and washing machine size robots
and
then
run t
hem in a series of competitions.


FIRST redefines winning for students. Teams are rewarded for
excellence in design, demonstrated team spirit,
gracious
professionalism
, maturity, and the ability to overcome
obstacles. Scoring the most points
in a competit
ion
is a
secondary goal. Winning means building
lasting
partnerships
and
gracious p
rofessionalism
is a way of doing things that
encourages high
-
quality work, emphasizes the value of others,
and respects individuals and the community.
