Washington FIRST Robotics (formerly FIRSTWA) is a non-profit volunteer organization that administers FIRST programs in the state of Washington. FIRST provides a framework and competitions for after school activities promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Washington FIRST Robotics supports all FIRST programs in Washington including Jr.FLL, FLL, FTC, and FRC.

Like most non-profits, we raising funds to keep the programs operating. Popularity of FIRST and the associated rapid growth have caused our expenses to increase dramatically in the last few years. We serve over 12,000 students in the Pacific Northwest, brought over 250,000 volunteer hours into our schools, and helped provide nearly 500,000 hours of supervised STEM activities. Washington FIRST Robotics accomplishes all of this on a small budget. All of those funds come from our local community, individuals, corporations, and foundations.

If you or your children are involved in FIRST or you work for a company that understands the value of increased student interest in STEM education, then please support Washington FIRST Robotics.
