Under strict rules and limited time and resources, teams of high school students are challenged to build industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game in alliance with other teams, while also fundraising to meet their goals, designing a team “brand,” and advancing respect and appreciation for STEM within the local community. FIRST Robotics Competition gives high school students and their adult mentors the opportunity to work and create together to solve a common problem.
Learn more about FIRST Robotics Competition and other FIRST programs on their official website.

Through our collaborations with the Center for Excellence and the ICT Zupanija, we have the resources and facilities we need to create a successful FRC team in Split. We are looking for volunteer mentors to work with both Croatian and International youth on our FRC team and build our first robot. Our goal is to attend the Istanbul FRC Regional tournament in early 2023 and earn our place at the FRC World Championship in the US.
Mentors are asked to commit 2-5 hours per week working with students in their areas of expertise on a particular area of the project. We are looking for industry professionals in the areas of electronics, computer programming, manufacturing and fabrication, CAD, marketing and business, or any other enthusiastic adults willing to share their time with teenagers and give back to the community.
Sign up to for an opportunity to meet some of our students and mentors to decide if volunteering to become an FRC mentor is the right fit for you.
