Challenge

FIRST Chesapeake addresses a critical gap in STEM education. Many students across DC, MD, and VA lack opportunities to engage in practical, hands-on learning. We combat this deficit through interactive robotics programs, fostering STEM skills, teamwork, leadership, and creativity. Yet, many promising minds remain unreached due to resource constraints. By bridging this gap, we can empower our youth and build the leaders of tomorrow.

Through the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), we enrich classroom learning with real-world applications, cultivating technical expertise and vital life skills. Our programs progressively build upon prior knowledge, enabling students to grow their abilities and confidence over time, thus preparing them for future academic and career succ

Long-Term Impact
