FIRST exposes youth to the fun and excitement of science and technology while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life-skills. Alongside adult/parent volunteers, FIRST teams solve problems using engineering concepts, presentation techniques and robotics.

F.I.R.S.T. LEGO League


Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League* teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8**) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then compete on a table-top playing field.

F.I.R.S.T. Tech Challenge


It’s way more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams (10+ members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to play a floor game in an alliance format.
