Maryland FIRST offers a progression of programs for youth in grades K to 12, ages 6-18. With assistance from our sponsors, coaches, mentors, and friends, FIRST programs challenge and inspire more than 5,000 students in more than 600 teams across the state through robotics competitions. FIRST operations in Maryland are driven by a small staff in-state and many dedicated local volunteers. Our partner in Maryland for the FIRST LEGO League program is the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). USRA STEMaction Center, Inc. is our partner for the FIRST Tech Challenge and Junior FIRST LEGO League programs. We coordinate events and fundraising for the FIRST Robotics Competition with the FIRST Chesapeake, which encompasses Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia.
