National Teams

The FIRST Global Challenge is a truly international robotics event with more than 175 nations across the world participating.

Participating teams are composed of students – aged 14 through 18 years – with the common goal of increasing their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics so that they can become the next generation of scientific leaders who will work together to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems, from food security and access to clean water, to finding better medicines and securing cyberspace.

By clicking on the map below, you will find photos and short biographies for each of the teams making the trip to the FIRST Global Challenge. You can also click on a country to support the national team! Our map will be updated as new teams are confirmed to attend.
