WHAT IS FIRST ® ROBOTICS COMPETITION?
Each year, a separate theme is determined and teams all over the world are learning the theme simultaneously with the live broadcast on the internet. The teams start the robot building process from the moment they learn this theme. In this process, students work with engineers. Within a limited time of 6 weeks, teams need to pack, seal and ship their robots. After this hard work, the teams participate in the tournament that lasts 3 days.

The main focus of Fikret Yüksel Foundation is to improve the education they receive by enabling Turkish students to participate in FIRST® Robotics Competition (http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc). As in the FIRST slogan, we believe that “More Than Robots” is compatible with our Mission and vision for us.
