FIRST® programs introduce students to coding and engineering in an environment where they work collaboratively to solve a robotics challenge. FIRST programs are proven to build 21st century skills, including innovative thinking, and greatly increase students’ motivation to seek education and careers in STEM fields.
After 30 years of changing the lives of millions of participants with the individual, competitive team experience, we are pleased to introduce Class Pack editions of our STEM education programs for PreK-12 students. This non-competitive offering benefits educators wishing to implement STEM/robotics in their classrooms or structured after-school programs, as well as those wanting to expand the high-quality, project-based-learning experience of FIRST programs to more of their students. Students will enjoy the excitement of competition through expos and competitions hosted by their school.
