ONE DAY, THOUSANDS OF INSPIRATIONS.
Community FIRST is an international volunteering day, founded by FRC team RoboActive #2096, in which all the participating teams place their robot aside and set the community as their first priority.
Woodie Flowers was the first person to believe in Community FIRST. He saw the potential of this day even before the day even held. As the entire FIRST community knows, Woodie has been an inspiration to all: Students, alumni, mentors, volunteers, and even our families. As an honor to his inspiration, vision, and legacy, we are proud to name Community FIRST in memory of Woodie Flowers
In the last 6 years, more than 400 teams from 30 countries and 60,000 people who were involved in the teams' initiatives took part and united under one goal - spreading science and technology.
