From renewable energy to clean drinking water, pollution to natural disasters, we are facing unprecedented challenges in the coming years. FIRST aims to create a generation of highly skilled problem solvers that can create innovative solutions to our toughest obstacles.
FIRST Robotics is the only sports where every student can go pro.

How Does FIRST Robotics Work?
FIRST programs teach technical skills such as CAD, fabrication, electronics, and programming. But students also learn to project manage, work on a team, meet deadlines, and the value of hard work. All the efforts culminate in events where teams come together to compete and show off their completed robots.
