It's the Hardest Fun You'll Ever Have!

This season, we’re stepping into the world of sports, play, and fitness – moving, collaborating, competing, and celebrating. Students will explore the activities we can do in different spaces for play and how we can ensure that our games and activities are fun and accessible for everyone involved.

2020-2021 Season

Every year, Alaskan youth on FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge, and FIRST Robotics Competition teams work together to build and program robots and to find solutions for the problems their teams face. These teams are getting ready to put those problem-solving skills to the test.

With a plan in place to run tournaments remotely or in-person as appropriate and some extra resources to help teams operate in a COVID-19 environment, it’s time to get to work. Or should we say, it’s time to play! FIRST LEGO League Discover (formerly FLL Jr.) and FIRST LEGO League Challenge (formerly FLL) teams, check out your season material now!  FIRST Tech Challenge teams, you can find yours here. Let's be Game Changers!

Vision

"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders."

Dean Kamen, Founder

Mission

Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.


For students aged 6-18, FIRST® is the hardest fun you’ll ever have. For team mentors, coaches, and volunteers, it’s the most rewarding adventure you’ll ever undertake. For sponsors, it’s the most enlightened investment you could ever make. The annual programs culminate in robotics competitions where teams win recognition, gain self confidence, develop people and life skills, make new friends, and perhaps discover an unforeseen career path.
