FIRST Robotics Competition （FRC比赛）是由美国非盈利性机构FIRST主办，面向所有中学生的一项工业级机器人竞赛。FRC成功地把运动的刺激性和科学技术的精确结合在一起。该项赛事已经获得全球100多所高校的认可。
First Robotics Competition, facing all the high school students, is an industrial-grade competition held by nonprofit organization FIRST.FRC successfully combinesthe excitements of sportswith the rigors of science and technology. It has been credited by hundreds of high school world-widely.
FIRST releases the new topic of this year in January each year; thereafter, teams build their own robots in the following two months; regional selection competition starts in March; finally, world-championship is held in St. Louise, US.Due to the special rule system, any two teams on the field may become your allies in this game, and then they may become your opponent in the next game. There is a fierce confrontation between the teams, and more cooperation, communication and cooperation are required.Experience in participating the FRC is meaningful to all the participants. Therefore, through participating in the FRC,students can not only experience engineering that is very close to real life, but also their own self-challenges.
FRC Team 9118, The Cheetahs, 于2019年成立于上海市七宝德怀特高级中学。在FTC比赛中崭露头角后，我们怀着更深⼊地探索和发扬FIRST（For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology）及STEM精神Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics的心愿，决心在FRC赛事上展开新的旅程。我们将保持参加FIRST赛事的初心，通过⾃己切身的经历和经验，将FIRST精神和FRC比赛推广给更多的⻘少年，让他们有机会发掘⾃己的⽆限可能，并从中收获受益终身财富。
FRC Team 9118 –The Cheetahs- is founded at Qibao Dwight High School in the year of 2019.After cutting a brilliant figure in the FTC competition, we start a new journey at the FIRSTin order to further explore and carry forwardthe spirit of FIRST (for Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).We will continue to participate in the FIRST events, andwe will promote the FIRST spirit and FRC competition to more teenagersthrough our own experience, giving them the opportunity to discover their infinite possibilities and life-long fortune.
In the 2018-2019 season, we participated in the design and construction of the robot along with the Team 5515. We also went to Hawaii and Houston for the competitions, from which we not only familiarized with the process of the games, but also gained valuable experience.Nowadays, 41 players have joined our team, and we will start the work of the new season with enthusiasm.
RCC 2019 杭州是我们第一次作为单独的队伍参加FRC比赛。在成为一支独当一面的队伍时，我们遇到了不少挑战，但也学到了许多新知识。虽然我们有在交附交换学习的经验，但我们在大大小小的细节上都遇到了不少问题。凭着对队员们之间的协作、对比赛的热情与FIRST精神的支持下，我们成功地克服了这些问题并且获得了自己Rookie Inspiration Award。
RCC 2019 Hangzhou is the first FRC we participated independently.As an independent team, we learned a lot of new thing, despite for facing difficulties that we did not expected.Though we have practiced and participated competitions with Team 5515, we have encountered many challenges.With cooperation between team members, enthusiasm towards the games and support of the spirit of FIRST, we have successfully overcome all the challenges we encountered and have won Rookie Inspiration Award.
