Questions related to teaching, guiding and mentoring teams in the different FIRST programs (FLL jr. FLL, FTC, FRC) in the computer science aspect.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an international, non profit organization which has made it it's purpose to inspire children and teenagers (ages 6 to 18) to study and pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields.
Each year a new competition or mission is revealed for each on of FIRST's programs. FLL (FIRST Lego League), FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) and FRC teams build and program robots for the competition (or mission, for FIRST Lego League). More information can be found here. The teams work on these robots during the build season (a few months; each program has a different length of the build season)
This tag is for questions related to teaching, guiding and mentoring FIRST teams in programming and computer science. Questions regarding a specific program in FIRST (One of the aforementioned four programs) should use the relevant tag, instead. (e.g. use frc for questions related to mentoring FIRST Robotics Competition teams in programming and computer science).
