School Partnerships Program
Rockwell Automation provides value offering a broad range of partnering opportunities. The University Relations program is an extension of our partnerships, where relationships are built with selected universities that offer engineering, business and technology curriculum. The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique varsity sport of the mind designed to help high school-aged young people discover how interesting and rewarding the life of engineers and researchers can be.
FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1989 by inventor Dean Kamen. The organization's vision is to create a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people can dream of becoming science and technology heroes.
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique varsity sport of the mind designed to help high school-aged young people discover how interesting and rewarding the life of engineers and researchers can be. FRC challenges teams of young minds and their mentors to solve a common problem in a six-week time frame using a standard "kit of parts" and a common set of rules. FIRST redefines winning for these students because they are rewarded for excellence in design, demonstrated team spirit, gracious professionalism and maturity, and the ability to overcome obstacles. Scoring the most points is secondary.
FIRST also offers the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), a more affordable and accessible program for high school students, the FIRST LEGO® League (FLL) for 9 to 14 year-olds and the Junior FIRST Lego League (FLL) for 6 to 9 year-olds. Teams from the FRC, FTC and FLL programs will be at the booth demonstrating their robots.
You are sure to be engaged as students showcase their FIRST robots in the FIRST Automation Fair booth. Among all the sophisticated automation products and systems you'll see in the convention center, the FIRST booth will surely remind you why you were inspired to become an engineer.
