GENERAL RESOURCES

FRC Home Page
Homepage of the First Robotics Competition.

FRC Technical Resources
You can find fantastic information about wiring electronics, running your pneumatics, writing software, and much more.

Official FRC Forum
This is the official forum for FRC. Many FRC Software and Hardware engineers as well as the game committee will collaborate here to help answer any questions you have throughout the season.

FRC Manual
Headquarter page for the FRC Game and Administrative Manual. If you have not read either the game or admin manual, you should read them now. Read the administrator manual to understand how the tournaments, awards, and field control works. You can also get field drawings here.

STIMS (Student Team Information System)
Team members sign up here so FIRST recognizes you. This is where you can have your parents acknowledge your participation in the program so you don’t have to get them to sign permission forms for each event you go to. This is where you also submit your video and essay for the Chairman's award and other various awards.

FRC Grants Page
Grant applications are filed here. The NASA grant is the most important.
