About Us

OUR MISSION

NYC FIRST gives New York City’s youth the STEM education they need and deserve. We run mentor-based robotics and STEM education programs across the five boroughs that build character and confidence through the development of technology and engineering skills.

OUR VISION

We envision a future where every young person has access to rigorous and inspiring STEM education and succeeds academically and in their career.

HOW WE DO IT

We combine the energy and teamwork of tournament competition with formal learning and advanced technology resources. Our expert teachers and adult mentors encourage young people to build on their strengths and challenge them to push the envelope of what’s possible.

  • Our work builds on the FIRST model, which sparks students’ interests in STEM through mentor-based robotics competitions while they build self-confidence and life skills.
  • Young people compete from an early age into their high school years, making for sustained experiences in STEM that continue into college and their careers. They help each other and collaborate across boroughs, working together graciously to share knowledge.
  • Most of our teams are guided by mentors and all have equal access to the equipment and resources they need to compete.
