Document Library

One of the key components of FIRST is the collaboration between teams to share knowledge. Unlike traditional sports, in which one only cares about his or her own team, FIRST stresses gracious professionalism among teams. In order to help other FIRST teams, our students and mentors have written several articles and white papers to assist other teams. In addition to the white papers that were written by our team, we have included links to a few "must-read" white papers that encompass everything from people's experiences in FIRST to digital copies of newspaper articles that have featured our team. Finally, we have also included many older archived FIRST documents here as well.

Note: FIRST has granted our team permission to post official FIRST media here as digital archived materials in our Document Library pages. All official FIRST documents, brochures, and materials are copyright by FIRST. All rights reserved.

This white paper and corresponding video has now been downloaded over 2000 times since 7 Jan, 2009!
