In the FIRST Robotics Competition teams of high schoolers are given just six weeks to design, build, and program a robot capable of playing a challenging field game against other robots.

But it's way more than robots, it's about learning new skills, working as a team, practicing respect, making new friends, finding out what you can do, and having fun in addition.
