About FIRST Washington

FIRST Washington is the largest after school STEM program in the state. They serve 11,000 young people, ages 6 to 18 on more than 1,000 teams across all four programs: FIRST LEGO League Jr. (grades K-4th); FIRST LEGO League (grades 4th-8th); FIRST Tech Challenge (grades 7th –12th); FIRST Robotics Competition (grades 9th-12th).

FIRST programs ignite youthful minds in education, hard work, problem-solving, and mentorship through fun and exciting robotics competitions. The programs foster well-rounded life skills such as self-confidence, teamwork, and leadership and at the same time inspire students to pursue post-secondary education/training in STEM thereby building a pipeline of STEM professionals to fill jobs right here in our community. Their teams and the organization are supported by more than 5,500 amazing volunteers including coaches and mentors.
