For 30 years, FIRST® volunteers have fueled the mission by inspiring millions of young people to reach for the stars by creating a global support system built for students who need a spark of curiosity and encouragement to launch their dreams. Inspiring the next generation of innovators, technology leaders, and change-makers here on Earth…and beyond.
The FIRST® San Diego Regional is a high-energy, high-tech spectator sporting event that teams professionals and young people together to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way. The program is life-changing, career-molding and a lot of fun. We invite you to experience the excitement of this intense competition, tour the “pits” to visit with teams and robots, and cheer on your favorite team. Teams at the San Diego Regional will vie for regional awards and a spot at the FIRSTChampionship. The competition is part of FIRST, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to inspire young people’s interest and participation in science and technology.
Each year this multinational competition reaches more than 96,250 students on over 3,850 teams in competitions held across the USA and in other parts of the world.
