THE FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP IS A LIFE CHANGING EVENT!
FIRST believes in encouraging study through STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering and Math] skills. The idea is to increase students’ interests towards study of Science and Technology by motivating and cultivating self confidence, creativity, critical thinking and communication skills to embolden the young minds to prepare for a future.
FIRST IS THE OLDEST AND LARGEST STUDENT ROBOTICS PROGRAM IN THE WORLD

FIRST GLOBAL – THE OLYMPICS OF ROBOTICS.
Every nation will send their designated national team to compete at FIRST Global. Imagine the excitement of Sports and the thrill of seeing Robotics and Technology application.

Inspired by the success of FIRST, FIRST GLOBAL has come up with a unique approach to encourage middle and high school students to compete at International level.

 

FIRST GLOBAL Robotics Championship will be held in July 2017 in Washington DC, USA. From across the Globe, selected National teams will be brought together under one umbrella with their robots.

CREATIVITY IN SCHOOLS IS MORE THAN AN ART CLASS OR A BOX OF CRAYONS. IT’S A CONNECTION IN SCIENCE, DESIGN WITH MATH, LOCATION PATTERNS IN HISTORICAL CONTENT, AND INVENTING TO CHANGE THE WORLD.CREATIVITY IS NOT AN EXTRA OR AFTERSCHOOL ACTIVITY.CREATIVITY IS LEARNING.
