NEOFRA teams design and build robots to compete in one of four different levels of yearly robotics competitions facilitated by the non-profit FIRST organization.
 Our shared mission "is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership."
