Be part of something extraordinary. Work with, and inspire tens of thousands of students at the ultimate celebration of science and technology, FIRST® Championship. In April of each year, students in grades K-12 from around the world will gather in downtown Houston and Detroit to showcase their STEM skills and compete with their robots, and you can be part of the excitement.

In 2019, FIRST Championship will take place in Houston, Texas, April 17-20 and in Detroit, Michigan, April 24-27. Volunteers are a vital component of making these events a success with more than 1,500 volunteer roles available.
