The 2021 FIRST Championship has been rescheduled to be held in Houston in mid-July 2021 and Detroit in early August 2021 . Hosted by global nonprofit FIRST, FIRST Championship is a culminating event for our youth robotics competition season and an annual celebration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for our community as we prepare young people for the future.
As always, we’re keeping the safety and wellbeing of our community as our top priority and will continue to evaluate the scale and viability of FIRST Championship events in the months ahead. As a result, we may need to make further adjustments to FIRST Championship, including adjusting invitation and attendance criteria to allow for event scaling.
