The FIRST Robotics program is one that inspires students to learn about Science while giving back to their community.
“FIRST” stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.”
A FIRST team #2655, or as they call themselves, The Flying Platypi, stopped by FOX8 Monday morning to show off their robotic skills.
The group from Colfax brought along a robot they built in just six weeks.
FIRST Robotics promotes STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Electrical and Mathematics in education.
