The newest FIRST Robotics teams in Australia are ready to gear up

Can robots inspire a passion for science? You bet they can! And we’re excited that more than 600 students from 30+ schools across Australia will soon be discovering how exciting robotics and STEM education can be via our friends at FIRST Robotics Australia.

As part of our commitment to supporting STEM education in Australia we announced in July $1 million in funding to three nonprofits working with students across Australia to inspire them about STEM careers. FIRST Robotics was one of the recipients. Through these grants, more than 30 new First Lego League (FLL) teams will be established in schools across Australia with FIRST Australia providing a robotics set, teacher mentoring and support, and a connection to a proven program that excites and inspires students in careers in STEM.
