The 2019-20 season, powered by a global philanthropic initiative of Star Wars, aims to inspire the next generation of innovators. By helping to promote and expand access to FIRST challenges and programs, we hope to motivate them to explore STEM fields and collaborate for innovative ideas to solve problems of tomorrow.
This project aims at offering more opportunities to local schools, especially those under-resourced to take part at the FIRST® programs. Qualified schools upon successful enrolment would receive both robot kits and support to compete in this season!
This Scheme is open for those who are interested and aged 18 or above to apply. Participants could join a workshop to learn more about FIRST® and the 2 competition tool kits, WeDo 2.0 and EV3, as well as design thinking and presentation skills. Upon completing the scheme, participants could become paid tutors to teach and have the chance to be the referees in the FIRST Hong Kong robotics tournament. It comes with the complete experience to be part of the FIRST competition!
The 2019-20 season is about building our city. To encourage general participation, a LEGO® creation competition will be held. Families are welcome to form teams to build their favorite city by making use of LEGO pieces. To enter into the competition, teams can upload photos and videos to a dedicated website to introduce their creations.
