Based in Manchester, NH, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.

    FIRST® LEGO® League introduces STEM to children through fun, exciting hands-on learning. Participants gain real-world problem-solving experience through a guided, global robotics program, helping today’s students and teachers build a better future together. FIRST LEGO League’s three age-appropriate divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics centered around a yearly theme.

What is Coopertition?

  • What is coopertition? Coopertition is displaying unqualified kindness and respect in the face of fierce competition. Coopertition is founded on the concept and a philosophy that teams can and should help and cooperate with each other even as they compete.

    Coopertition involves learning from teammates. It is teaching teammates. It is learning from mentors. And it is managing and being managed. Coopertition means always competing, but assisting and enabling others when you can.

Education Standards Alignment Maps

  • Education Standards Alignment Maps

    FIRST has completed an external analysis and mapping of all FIRST Programs to 3 sets of educational standards: Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and 21st Century Learning Skills. In an effort to increase the usefulness of the standards alignment maps, they are arranged by program and grade level. Exemplars that describe how and to what extent FIRST programs meet each standard are provided for each indicator/skill in the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Skills and for each Performance Expectation in the Next Generation Science Standards. Full alignment (clearly addresses a standard) is designated by a green indicator. Partial alignment (the potential to address as part of the program either by actions the coach/mentor takes when working with the students or by conditions established by the program for that given year), is noted by a yellow indicator.
