Welcome to Our Community

 

Each year the FIRST Global season engages youth around the world in STEM. But in a time where we can’t gather in person, we’re launching a fun way for our FIRST Global community to remain connected. Just like other seasons, we’ll have volunteer involvement, national teams, and lots of engagement. Join us for a season filled with social media and technical challenges, talks by STEM professionals, and technical training sessions, all while connecting with the FIRST Global community around the world.

@f1rstglobal What have been doing during the quarentine time. ——- #firstglobal #fgc2020 #connecting #team

A post shared by Arotec (@arotec_su) on

❝For me, STEM is more than a word, it’s a universal tool that affects change, opportunity, and progress. Throughout history, we have been witnessing incredible changes that have made the world a better place, and all of this has been related to science and technology. But STEM education not only changes the world, but also the projects of each person. Regarding to my life project, STEM has given me great opportunities to get closer to my goals, and to be a positive reference point to my close circle. And although STEM means something different to each of us, we agree on something — we have much to improve in our life itself, and generate tools of great use to the world thanks to the STEM development.❞ —Carolain
