Join us in celebrating the next generation of game changers and innovators at the 2021 FIRST Global Innovation Awards powered by Star Wars: Force for Change!
FIRST, the world’s leading youth-serving nonprofit advancing STEM education, creates the people who will change the world – today and tomorrow. We prepare young people for the future through robotics and real world challenges that have a proven impact on learning, interest and skill-building inside and outside of the classroom.
This year, FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge teams join FIRST LEGO League Challenge at the Global Innovation Awards through participation in the FIRST Innovation Challenge presented by Qualcomm.
“FIRST has helped me become a better innovator, think outside the box, and not to be scared to tackle problems like scientists and engineers have been trying to solve for years. It doesn’t matter if people think your solution is too weird or too different to work. When you show you can fix a problem in a new way, they will understand. The fact that it was different is what made it successful.”
