The Kettering University FIRST Robotics Community Center was opened in 2014. The Center is the first of its kind on any university campus in the country.

The facility provides build spaces for FIRST teams, a regulation size practice field, multiple labs for machining, design, 3D printing and strategizing. More importantly, the students on these teams have unprecedented access to Kettering University's faculty, staff and facilities. Kettering students also serve as mentors to teams.
