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, iPads, and FLL® tables
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.
