Welcome to another great season with Adventist Robotics and FIRST!

We know that schools and communities are stretched in ways we couldn’t have imagined. Even with that, we don’t want our students to miss the opportunities provided by FIRST to become innovators, learn how to work together, and to learn engineering and programming skills. Our goal is to keep tournament costs to a minimum with tournament fees no more than $40/team. We will update you when we open event registration later this year.

Yes, there will be tournaments this year. We will have both in-person and remote events. This will be determined by the restriction necessary at the tournament site. We know that in-person tournaments are always the best experience and will work to have those safely whenever possible. We also know that not everyone will feel comfortable with an in-person tournament. The good news is that we have several months until our tournaments, and we continue to pray that conditions will improve to where we can safely meet together again. Watch for more details on the safety protocols at the tournaments.

The good news here is that with the availability of remote events, you can participate in a FIRST LEGO League Challenge event even if there is not a tournament close to you!

FIRST Tech Challenge

Code, Design, and Compete with Robots!

For grades 7-12: FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.

First Lego League

PreK thru 8th grade - ages 4-14: FIRST LEGO League introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to children ages 4-14 through fun, exciting hands-on learning. Participants gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program, helping today’s students and teachers build a better future together.

Our three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.

We are a group of Adventist students, teachers, and mentors - partnered with FIRST - who recognize the importance of STEM education in Adventist schools. We recognize that students involved in our robotics programs learn much more than engineering. They learn marketing, time-management, communication skills, and creative problem solving in a fun and engaging way.
