Bring a robot to the library, host a demo at a university, or organize a robot convention. There are no rules other then to share the excitement of robotics with your community. If you hosted an event in 2020, tell us about your event.
As part of a FIRST® team, kids apply math and science knowledge, solve problems, make decisions, communicate complex ideas, collaborate as part of a team, exercise leadership, manage resources, create and execute business plans – all essential skills in any successful technological enterprise.
FIRST® competitions and tournaments are celebrations by which communities convey the importance of their students’ achievements in science and technology. FIRST® celebrations are fun, energetic and filled with excitement.
