FIRST Robotics Competition: Young Adults in the World of Engineering

· FIRST,Daniel Sheflin

Daniel Sheflin is an expert in the field of wireless technology and the former vice president of Honeywell’s Technology Automation Control Solutions department. Outside of his work, Daniel Sheflin has sponsored the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition.

FIRST Robotics Competition, founded in 1989, is an engineering tournament created for high school students of every skill level and talent. During the six-week experience, students work in teams of 20 or more to create and program robots to compete against other teams in a variety of field games. The students must also fundraise for their project on their own time and develop a personal brand for their team. This enables the participants to gain insight into the real world of engineering in a fun, challenging setting.

Students who do not possess technical skills are also encouraged to participate: the website boasts that there is “a job for everyone.” To get involved or participate, visit firstinspires.org.
