Badge of Completion for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Training

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

At FIRST, we are committed to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. Last year, in collaboration with the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE), we released training modules to help the FIRST community understand strategies that can be used to support student participation and success. If you haven’t yet had a chance to do so, please take this training. Whether you are a student, a mentor, or volunteer, it can help. The training is free, and is just a click away! Check it out.


FIRST Robotics Competition Game Concepts

You heard about this, right? We’re looking for your game concepts! Due August 15th.


Name The Planet Contest!

This one too! Help us name the planet in this season’s game and make all your friends wicked jealous! And winning this contest would be some serious college resume fodder.* This one is due on the 15th also!



Join us once again tomorrow night, Tuesday, August 14, at 7pm ET for our latest episode on our Twitch channel. We will be talking to the FIRST LEGO League staff to learn what it's like to work here. Get your questions ready and tune in!




*Acceptance at the college of your choice upon winning the contest completely not guaranteed.

Our team will not be meeting until tomorrow and we just missed the deadline to submit game ideas and our planet name. Will FIRST really not consider any ideas submitted late? I'm really hoping they are lenient on the deadline, even a day would help.

Hi Jacob! Unfortunately, due to outside deadlines for us, we did not accept late submissions for either of these opportunities. We sincerely apologize for that. Thanks! Jamee
