The Mississippi FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics Program is a great way for a company, educational institution, philanthropic foundation, or individual to make a contribution to the education of our youth! FIRST Tech Challenge provides students hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) which help build a technologically literate workforce with strong business skills.

By aligning your brand with Mississippi FIRST Tech Challenge, your company will:

Stand out as a recognized leader in advancing STEM education and employment in our state;

Grow brand recognition through exposure to thousands of students, families, educators, and STEM professionals by logo placement on event marketing materials and links on our website;

Increase employee loyalty and engagement – Research shows employees of companies with philanthropic programs and shared volunteer opportunities are more productive, loyal, and engaged;

Expand customer loyalty and public awareness as an advocate of Mississippi’s capacity to innovate by providing STEM education for all K-12 students;

Build lasting relationships with colleges, universities, and professional organizations — helping recruit STEM-skilled employees.

We know that our future will be built better together. As part of the global FIRST community, your partnership brings that opportunity – the inspiration, creativity, and hope that FIRST provides – to hundreds of thousands of young people each year. With your support, we’ve created a movement. We are a robotics community dedicated to building a thriving, sustainable future, where business, education, and community leaders work together to give all citizens equitable opportunities.
