FIRST Class is designed to be an introduction to FIRST's family of robotics programs as well as an overview of the NEW Apple Corps, its functional groups, team organization, and student opportunities. The class meets every Thursday that the team meets during the preseason. In addition, students will be expected to contribute 10 hours weekly during the build season and attend at least one competition. For those who are new to the team, the class is a great way to understand the organization and function of the team. For those who are veterans, the class offers the opportunity to earn credit for your contributions to and leadership on the team.
