About Us

NYC FIRST Robotics:

A nationally proven STEM education model, NYC FIRST Robotics is comprised of four programs. The purpose of each program is to make STEM education engaging, tangible and fun by incorporating it into an exciting team sport for participants and their friends, families and communities. In each program, students apply math and science knowledge to solve problems, make decisions and communicate complex ideas. This enrichment culminates in exhilarating competitions where participants collaborate as part of a team, exercise leadership, manage resources, and create/execute business plans.
