FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a non-profit organization based in Manchester, New Hampshire. Founded in 1989 by Inventor Dean Kamen and Professor Woodie Flowers, FIRST aims "to create a world where science and technology are celebrated… where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes."
This year's FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) game, Ultimate Ascent, is a combination of ultimate frisbee and ascending a pyramid. Two teams of three alliances each aim to outscore the other by earning as many points as possible in the autonomous and teleoperated periods of a match.
