FIRST® LEGO® League, one of four STEM-learning programs from FIRST®, immerses kids in real-world science and technology challenges. Teams of kids ages 9 to 14 are challenged to design their own solution to current scientific problems, then build LEGO®robots that perform autonomous “missions.” In the process, they develop valuable life skills and discover exciting career possibilities in science and technology. They even discover that they, too, can make positive contributions to society.
FIRST RGV in conjunction with FIRST robotics is a non-profit operating in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas for the purpose of bringing quality science, technology, engineering and mathematics ( STEM / S.T.E.M.) programs to the students. Any donations to FIRST RGV can be restricted to a specific team or can be used for general program operations that serve more than 2,400 students in Hidalgo, Cameron, Willacy, Starr and Zapata counties.
FIRST is much more than robots. Students involved in a FIRST program will experience: business planning, engineering, social media marketing, leadership building skills, innovative / critical thinking skills, public speaking opportunities and guidance and being involved in a program that does not just suggest, but requires GRACIOUS PROFESSIONALISM as part of life.
Support FIRST RGV through cash donations, volunteering your team to mentor a team or support a competitive robotics event in your community.
