Why are schools across Libya taking on FIRST?

School based FIRST teams represent their schools wherever they go, even representing their school and Libya if they make world championship events!

Not only are these opportunities exciting experiences for the competitors – participation in the competitions teaches students problem solving, public speaking, teamwork, communication, time management, science and mathematics, research and technology skills. These are skills which are not only personally rewarding to the students but also reflect very well on their school.

Start an FTC team for students aged 12-18 years old

For high school – students can join the team in year 7 and stay with it for several years. FIRST Tech Challenge teams need a kit of parts from PITSCO, REV, GoBilda or other suppliers. The parts can be re-used each year.

The most successful teams in from the championship will be invited to attend the World Robotics Championships in the United States.
