FIRST Chesapeake uses robots as the vehicle to bring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) based leadership opportunities to youth.

Competitions are fast-paced, fun, full of music and cheering fans!

Our volunteers are the key to our success. Whether your skills are technical or not, or even a bit rusty, we can use your help. Volunteers are needed before, during, and after our competitions- field set-up, team and volunteer registration tables, queuers, judges and referees, robot inspectors, photographers, etc. We would love for you to join us. Prior FIRST experience is helpful but not required.
