For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is for high school students. This is when older students begin to explore career options and thing more about the future. At the same time, they often ‘live in the moment’ and experiment in ways that can concern the adults around them. The following slides will share some basic facts about the physical, mental, emotional, and social growth of this age group.
