2020 THEME: CONNECTING COMMUNITIES
Each year the FIRST Global season engages youth around the world in STEM. But in a time where we couldn’t gather in person, we launched a fun way for our FIRST Global community to remain connected. Like other seasons, we had volunteer involvement, national teams, and lots of engagement through social media and technical challenges, talks by STEM professionals, and technical training sessions, all while connecting the FIRST Global community around the world.
The COVID-19 pandemic required a shift for the fourth edition of the FIRST Global Challenge. Despite not being able to convene in person, teams remained connected under the theme of “Connecting Communities,” engaging with various content to strengthen their technical and soft skills, as well as bring benefit to their communities.
