Welcome to FIRST Robotics BC!
THE FUTURE IS YOURS TO CREATE
Lights, Camera, STEAM! Science, tehcnology, engineering, arts, and math(STEAM) inspire big ideas, bold action - and creativity. Our sklills make it possible to create art and experiences that bring us together, entertain us, and move us.
During the 2023-2024 FIRST season, FIRST® IN SHOW presented by Qualcomm, we're shining a spotlight on the role STEM plays in the arts and empowering young people to design and build a world of endless possibilities. The future is a place you will create.
Ages 4 to 14
FIRST® LEGO® League introduces STEM to children ages 4-14 through fun, exciting hands-on learning. Participants gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program, helping today’s students and teachers build a better future together. The three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.
Ages 12 to 18
FIRST® Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and program robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.
Grades 9 to 12
FIRST® Robotics Competition teams design, program, and build a robot starting with a standard kit of parts and common set of rules to play in a themed head-to-head challenge. Teams also build a brand, develop community partnerships for support, and work to promote STEM in their local community.
Proceeds from this 50/50 draw will support FIRST Robotics British Columbia teams that qualify for FIRST World Championship or other international competitions, and support FIRST Robotics British Columbia in carrying out our mission to make FIRST programs accessible to every student in BC.
