3 Reasons Why FIRST Robotics Is Cool
Alright. Let's be honest here. FIRST Robotics is a little nerdy when it comes down to it. It involves a whole realm of different "geeky" things like math, science, programming, and awkward small talk with random people you don't know, but in all reality, it is one of the coolest programs out there that will strengthen every area of life. FIRST Robotics is the bomb because of these three reasons:
1. There are REALLY smart people all around you.
In FIRST Robotics there are a countless number of math, science, programming, and engineering professionals all around you. The intellectual knowledge spans across the entire business platform. Being in FIRST is actually cool because not many individuals get to experience the level of professionalism and smarts.
2. You build freaking ROBOTS.
I don't care who you are, building your own personal robot is a INCREDIBLE experience. Not only are you building a robot that actually moves or drives around, you are building a robot that plays a sport, and it actually works. These robots play any-type of sport that ranges from soccer, to frisbee. I don't really know if you can get much cooler than that.
3. You get to meet new people.
There are thousands of people in FIRST Robotics and meeting some of them is certainly a pleasure from my own personal experience. You will get to meet some of the smartest individuals and, some of them have super awesome personalities. And yes men, you certainly can find lady friend that is smart and gorgeous at the same time; it is certainly the place to find such a women.
There you have it.
