About FRC

Peddie School Robotics participates in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), a global robotics competition in which teams have six weeks to design, fabricate, and code a 120+pound robot. FIRST’s magnitude and real-life applications allow Peddie students to gain practical skills in engineering, programming, and finance/marketing by emphasizing collaboration with peers and experienced adult mentors. By being involved in the design process, students are immersed in the FIRST robotics experience; the team strives to inspire its members to pursue careers in STEM.
