For more than 30 years, FIRST® programs have changed the lives of millions of students around the world through thrilling project-based, team-driven robotics challenges. Designed using evidence-based practices for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and 21st century learning, FIRST Class Pack provides implementation options for classrooms and structured after-school programs.
FIRST Class Pack resources prepare educators and facilitators to guide their students as they begin or continue a journey of STEM exploration using real-world scenarios and challenges. To celebrate students’ accomplishments, Class Pack events are run by the host school or organization. If you are interested in events run by local program delivery partners with the potential for progression to regional or national championships, see FIRST individual team options.
