About FIRST in Michigan

The mission of FIRST in Michigan is to establish a sustainable FIRST Robotics Competition team at every high school in the state. Ultimately, our goal is to strengthen the school to STEM career connection by implementing the FIRST progression of programs in every school and school district, preschool through grade 12. FIRST in Michigan wants students to thrive in a high tech world with an unbridled passion for skilled trades, engineering, programming, and corporate problem-solving. FIRST’s hands-on approach enables students to “test drive” these areas to see where their interests and aptitudes fit.
