FIRST

(For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a non-profit organization founded in 1989 and based in Manchester, New Hampshire that fosters the appreciation of science, engineering, technology, and innovation in youth all over the world.

STEM

The Carmel High School TechHOUNDS embodies the principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We strive to do our best in the promotion of STEM.

THIS YEAR'S GAME

The 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition Game, FIRST Stronghold, invites the creativity of Disney Pixar incorporated with the influence of FIRST in order to create an immersive experience in a medieval land. Whether it be launching boulders into castles, or demolishing defenses, the game allows a wide range of team and robot ability to be competitive. Predictability has been removed with the addition of enemy and audience selected defenses, leaving teams with more challenges than ever faced before.
