Through a progression of team-based robotics challenges, FIRST® helps young people discover a passion for STEM.



FIRST® Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and program robots to compete.



It takes many people to run each competition. We are always in need of volunteers from committee members to referees and judges.



It costs over $500,000 to run the region and all of our teams for a year. Do you want to help support our SoCal FTC program?
