Volunteers2012-2 copy

FIRST is a volunteer-driven and operated organization. Our success is directly proportional to the commitment of individuals who generously give their time and resources to our cause.

Ready, Set, Go Build Your Robots! Well, not yet…

In this our 5th year in South Florida we are looking forward to hosting 45+ teams at SUNNY Palm Beach. We are working hard to make sure we have a place to test, play and celebrate the outcome of those arduous 6 weeks of intense labor coming to all our teams pretty soon.

Conveniently located less than one mile from I-95 and 3 miles away from the Palm Beach International Airport, the tournament facility is easy and quick to access. Visiting teams will find numerous hotels close by, as well as easy access to the beaches, great shopping, fun local eateries, and beautiful Florida weather!

We wish to thank our sponsors for their invaluable support which has made this event possible, and most importantly, the attendance of so many teams.

And last, but by no means least, we would like to thank all our incredible volunteers. We wouldn’t be here without you. Rest assured that your hard work and dedication will make a long last impression in our teams.

If you have any questions about our regional event, please contact us.
