Transportation-Inspired Robotics Season

Registration for the 2021–2022 season is now open for all FIRST programs—preK–grade 12. Project-based, hands-on FIRST programs introduce students to engineering and coding in an engaging, inclusive, and creative classroom or afterschool learning environment where students work collaboratively to solve an annual robotics challenge. A STEM learning program is offered for every age. In the 2021–2022 season, Qualcomm presents FIRST FORWARD, in which teams reimagine a path forward and invent the future of transportation. FIRST LEGO League’s three age-appropriate divisions inspire youth, aged 4 to 16, to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics centered around the transportation theme. FIRST Tech Challenge encourages teams to design, build, program, and engage in robotics competitions. Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students aged 12 to 18 develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of innovation and teamwork. FIRST Robotics Competition teams of 14- to 18-year-olds use sophisticated technology to build and program industrial-sized robots to play a transportation-themed field game. The competition is as close to a real-world engineering experience as a student can get. Each team develops a brand, raises funds to meet its goals, and works to promote STEM in their local community.
