FIRST Global is a not-for-profit charity with a mission to inspire leadership and innovation in youth from all nations by empowering them through education in STEM. Having reached over 190 nations since 2017, FIRST Global aims to empower high-school students around the world to collectively tackle the world's most pressing challenges. They do this through the FIRST Global Challenge, which culminates in an Olympics-style, international robotics competition every year, with each country represented by a team of 3 to 5 students. This year's challenge is taking place from October 13-16 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Our team itself hails from across the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia and consists of five students: Allen, Avneet, Emmy, Kieran, and Lulu. We are proud to have been selected to represent Canada and are excited about what we have to offer.
As the competition is in Geneva this year, we need to raise funds for the competition registration fee. We are asking for your help in this undertaking. By assisting us, you are investing in the enthusiastic and ambitious engineers, scientists, leaders, and innovators of tomorrow. Thank you for your support!
