FIRST in Maryland will be supporting over 40 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics competitions from Dec. 2018 - April 2019 throughout Maryland for students ages 6 - 18. There will be hundreds of fun opportunities to volunteer for a day as a judge (both technical or non-technical) or referee or for logistical support. A technical or robotics background is NOT required (although these are fun roles for engineers & techies) and online and on-site training is provided. These competitions run like sporting events and are high energy.

The planning committees are now meeting to put the calendar in place for the 2018-19 season. The event calendar for 2018-19 will be in place by the end of September 2018.
