FIRST Australia

FIRST® Robotics is an internationally acclaimed robotics program that inspires a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in young people. Founded in the USA in 1989, FIRST® Australia was established at Macquarie University in 2006. Since then, FIRST® Australia has partnered with schools and universities across Australia with teams and competitions held in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Australian teams have enjoyed remarkable success attending the FIRST® World Championship Tournament each year from 2006 to 2018. An Australian FRC team, #3132 Thunder Down Under, is the first team outside of North America to win the prestigious Chairman's Award - the highest award that can be achieved in FIRST.
