FIRST Chesapeake presents a Town Hall on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Blacksburg High School Auditorium.

The goals of the FIRST Town Hall are to:
• Provide greater transparency within FIRST Chesapeake
• Update the teams and volunteers regarding the FIRST Ecosystem project
• FIRST Chesapeake's plans for the future

Hear your thoughts about how we can work together to strengthen the FIRST experience in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the Town Hall.

FIRST Chesapeake is a non-profit organization that supports the mission and vision of FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).

FIRST Robotics Competition is recognized as the premier high school engineering challenge. Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year. Every January, FIRST unveils the challenge or “game” at an annual kick-off event that is simulcast to locations around the world.

Following a six-week design and build phase, teams enter two of seven district competitions in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia.

FIRST Chesapeake operates under the umbrella of VirginiaFIRST, a registered 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1999. Our programs directly impact over 6,700 middle and high school students. Each year, 50,000+ individuals attend 15+ robotics competitions in the FIRST Chesapeake District. FIRSTChesapeake also works closely with our local FIRST partners to bring a seamless progression of K-12 STEM-based programs to youth in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
