Inspiring a New
Generation of Innovators

The Walt Disney Company is committed to providing today’s youth with inspiration and opportunity through transformative programming and has been a proud supporter of the global k-12 nonprofit organization, FIRST®, for over 20 years. This year, Lucasfilm and parent company Disney are excited to team up with FIRST to inspire the next generation of heroes and innovators as part of the
Star Wars: Force for Change philanthropic initiative.

For the last four decades, Star Wars has ignited a passion across generations and with audiences around the world to imagine the impossible, dig deep and to find the hero within themselves. As a robotics community, FIRST has done the same for millions of students – creating a movement to prepare young people for the future.
