Robotics Program

Introducing the 2023-2024 season's theme, FIRST® IN SHOWand the FIRST® Tech Challenge game, CENTERSTAGE!

Lights, Camera, STEAM! Science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) inspire big ideas, bold action – and creativity. These skills make it possible to create art and experiences that bring us together, entertain us, and move us. 


Using groundbreaking technologies, today’s artists and innovators can create connected experiences and build what many have only dreamed of. FIRST Strategic Partner Qualcomm Incorporated returns as our Season Presenting Sponsor to inspire FIRST participants to use their curiosity, creativity, and artistry to design and build a world of endless possibilities.


This season’s program challenges will celebrate how theater, film, music, and design bring people together and allow us to create the future.


FIRST® Tech Challenge teams will raise the curtain on the power of design, creativity, and precision to create all new experiences in CENTERSTAGESM presented by Raytheon Technologies, debuting September 9 at Mississippi's FIRST® Tech Challenge Kickoff Event!
