First® Robotics

FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) aims to inspire girls to become science and technology leaders. This mentor-based program is designed to inspire innovation, cultivate interest in STEM fields, and foster life skills (such as self-confidence, verbal communication and team-building).

Teams, led by adult volunteer coaches and mentors, work together to design and build a robot and program it to do various tasks. At the FLL and Jr. FLL levels, they also research a topic based on the challenge and do a presentation about their research and innovative solutions. Teams then compete at regional tournaments.

Through robotics, girls will learn valuable life and employment skills by creating ideas, solving problems and overcoming obstacles. They will also gain confidence in their abilities to positively use technology.

The four levels of robotics in which we are involving all-girl teams are:
