Event Details

As we celebrate over 20 years of inspiring New York City students to become science and technology leaders. We welcome you to attend our annual FIRST Robotic Competition Event, held in Washington Heights at the Armory Track and Field Center. As the New York City teams begin to grow, we have our annual competition showcasing all the hard work that our students have committed to over the last few months. Thousands of high school students participate in the NYC FIRST Robotics Competition each year. These students actually explore science and technology while they build robots and prepare to compete on the playing field.

Help us cheer them on as they exhibit these incredible skills, ability to work with others and creativity while competing for awards. Each season the students are presented with a new game that promises to be challenging and fun year after year. Each year, we have over 50 FIRST Robotics Teams competing from schools in New York City, Westchester, Rockland, Long Island, the United Kingdom and other countries.. FIRST participants are eligible for individual scholarships worth over $80 million from leading colleges and universities. Please visit our Science and Technology College & Career Expo to meet representatives from colleges and universities offering FIRST scholarships and from FIRST corporate sponsors committed to support FIRST.

Spectators — get ready for an unforgettable experience! You’ll see not just impressive machines with incredibly clever abilities, but also students and teams with enthusiasm, drive and spirit. You’ll be amazed at the robots. You’ll cheer with the teams. Visit the pits and exhibits — don’t miss our College Fair, FIRST Showcase and STEM Showcase — meet the students, cheer for your team, and get ready for a great day! All FIRST competitions are open to the public and free to enter, so we encourage you to come check out what makes FRC such a great event!
