Start a Robotics Team with Us
At La Salle Robotics, we are committed to bringing STEM education to communities and schools through the creation of FIRST® robotics teams. FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a robotics community that prepares young people for the future through a suite of inclusive, team-based robotics programs for ages 4-18 (PreK-12) that can be facilitated in school or in structured afterschool programs. Boosted by a global support system of volunteers, educators, and sponsors that include over 200 of the Fortune 500 companies, teams operate under a signature set of FIRST® Core Values to conduct research, fundraise, design, build, and showcase their achievements during annual challenges.

What we do
To create a generation of thinkers, leaders, and innovators; we provide opportunities for students to:
Work alongside professional engineers and business leaders
Learn to use industry-standard hardware and software
Develop skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, fundraising, and formal writing
Build and compete with robots they design themselves
Access millions of dollars in exclusive FIRST® college scholarships
How we do it
As part of our mission to promote STEM to young adults, we offer many amenities to those seeking assistance:
First-year expenses are paid by us for new teams
Materials including LEGO kits and FLL® challenge set
Access to exclusive coach workshops
Invitations to local competitions
We are very flexible in our approach to assisting new STEM programs and always tailor our strategy to meet community-specific needs. Our goal is to give new programs the resources they require to eventually operate without our ongoing assistance.
With assistance provided on 3 continents, there is no distance that is too far from our reach. Even in countries without formal robotics competitions, we can create meaningful ways for students to engage with STEM.
