FIRST Chesapeake District Championship

By Alli Lanham | Corporate Gifts Officer

Dear Friend,
Thank you for supporting the 5,700 students, grades 7-12, that participated in FIRST Chesapeake teams this past season! Together, we provided a leadership experience that develops 21-century skills which will prepare students for tomorrow's workforce.
Read on to learn where your dollars have made an impact:
  • FIRST Chesapeake District Championship: At the beginning of April, we welcomed 60 of the best and brightest high school FRC robotics teams (1,500+ students) from the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia to compete at the University of Maryland College Park Xfinity Center to earn a spot at the FIRST “World” Championship in Detroit. During this event, we had 10,000+ attendees as well as 12,000+ "Live stream sponsored by Northrop Grumman" views.
  • FIRST "World" Championship in Detroit: FIRST Chesapeake proudly sent 26 teams to compete against other qualified robotics teams from all over the world! Of these teams, eleven FRC teams made it to the championship semi-finals! One of our teams won the Judge's award. 
  • Without these competitions, our students would miss out on a crucial learning component - trial and error. Every time their robot competes, the students learn more and more about making improvements on their robot as well as learning a different technique from another team. 
Thank you for your support of FIRST Chesapeake and making this season a success!
We hope to see you next season!

Thank you -
