For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology
The vision of Dean Kamen also leads FIRST Israel's groups, FIRST is a non-profit organization and destiny to attract youth to work and experience science through electronics and robotics.
The organization is working with the great help of parents, teachers, mentors and volunteers. Many businesses in the country and overseas support groups and support the organization and ensure the continuous existence of the groups' activities.
The Israeli organization founded in 2005 and incorporates about 7,000 children and youth from across the country, there are 200 groups in Israel, and over 200 mentors which guide them, for each group that competes There are 5 major events The first is: 'the kickoff' in This occasion the teams receive the mission The last one is the national competition in the Nokia Arena.
In Israel the competition takes place in the Nokia arena, in Tel Aviv, for three days of excitement and adrenaline the teens apply the knowledge and skills they learned during the team's work. The event reaches its climax during the competition and leaned on the hundreds of volunteers in a wide and diverse array of talents and skills that help in the competition every year.
First Israel adopted the core ethos, kind professionalism that was invented by Dr. Woody Flowers, First professional consultant, which is through action that encourages high-quality work along with that stresses the value of other and respects the Haindbduel and community. During the competition in Israel there is a mutual assistance between the groups, a fact which indicates that you can contribute to society and enjoy the satisfaction in that you've honestly and sensitively contribute to the community of others.
The FIRST Robotics Competition (or FRC) is a robotics competition founded for high school students.
“The varsity sport for the mind,” FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.
Under strict rules, limited resources and time, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds,design a team “brand”, own teamwork skills, build and program the robots to perform given tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteering professional mentors how give their time, effort and talent; guide their teams through the competition. FRC was founded in 1992, four years after the creation of FIRST. Since the foundation of FRC, 27 seasons were played.
The FIRST Tech Challenge ( also known as FTC) is designed for students in grades 7–12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. The FTC teams are usally much smaller then FRC (including between 10-12 students), which allows all students to be involved in designing, building, and programming their robots. In September each year, FIRST announces the game challenge to FTC teams at Kickoff. Unlike FRC, there is no 'ship day' when the robot has to be finished; teams can work on their robots up to and during competitions. Along with building and programming a robot, FTC teams are required to create an 'Engineering Notebook' that documents their build season and team experience
The FIRST LEGO League (also known by the acronym FLL) is an international competition for elementary and middle school students. It is arranged by the FIRST organization. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams use LEGO Mindstorms kits, and one of two graphical based programming languages: EV3, the programming software that comes with the kit, or Robolab, a software language, that was originally built using, and designed to be like a real language used by professionals called Labview, to build and program small autonomous robots that traverse these LEGO playing fields and complete the given tasks.
