FIRST Robotics

An interesting way to get involved in programming as a high-school student


Aside from Python, other languages are also used for Robotics. If you are interested in Robotics, you should consider learning C++ and/or Java. Both of these languages are widely used in Robotics, in addition to Python.


Programming for the FIRST competitions is very enjoyable too. You get to work on robots, both for autonomous periods and driver-controlled periods. The FTC Robotics Teams (FIRST Tech Challenge) use Java. The FRC Robotics Teams (FIRST Robotics Competition) use C++, Java, Python or even LabVIEW.

That’s It!

This concludes our course on Python. We hope you enjoyed the course and now feel ready to take on programming in Python.
