FIRST® HQ Office Closure

FIRST® Headquarters will be closed for the U.S. July 4 holiday week from Monday, July 3 – Friday, July 7, and will reopen on Monday, July 10. If you need immediate/emergency assistance during this time please contact for support. Because of our office closure, there will be no team blast on Thursday, July 6. Have a safe and fun holiday!

FIRST Core Values and Social-Emotional Learning

FIRST programs stand apart in the STEM world of offerings due to our incorporation of the FIRST Ethos of Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition® and commitment to the FIRST Core Values. It is more important than ever that we engage students to practice empathy, understand self-assessment, manage behavior and emotions, and build social awareness and responsible decision-making in addition to other, more academic topics of education.

To support parents, educators, and coaches in the development of young people, we have created a free 10-session social-emotional curriculum series to be adaptable to remote and live learning environments, including classrooms, summer camps, team meetings, and parent-child at-home learning. Throughout these lessons, you’ll engage students in developing the five competencies of Social-Emotional Learning. Learn more about these tools on our blog.

Game Manual Part 1

Game Manual Part 1 is coming soon! Check our Game and Season Materials to get the scoop on our CENTERSTAGESM presented by Raytheon Technologies season on Tuesday, July 11.

Team Tip – Delegate and Designate

Share this email blast with your FIRST® Tech Challenge team! We know coaches are busy, it can be helpful to designate a team member or parent to read the weekly FIRST Tech Challenge team blast on Thursdays and report important information out to the team. That way you won’t miss out on any upcoming deadlines or season specifics. If your designated team blast reader is over the age of 18, all they need to do is sign up to receive the email on our Team Blast Archive. All blasts are also posted on the archive within 24 hours of sending.
