More than events

Young people deserve to be inspired by STEM like they’re at a music festival or sports event.

More than a robotics competition

FIRST Tech Challenge UK is more than robots – it’s about soft skills, teamwork and community. Our free events provide a platform for young people to showcase their talent on a global stage.

“The most rewarding moment has been seeing the passion, enthusiasm, and energy from the students. They’ve engaged in the task, adapted to overcome, and really put their heart and soul into the competition. It’s been breathtaking.”

Rob Leeman, Educational Solutions Manager, Arm



An afternoon at a local Champion Organisation to practice on the game field, meet other teams, share knowledge and grow your network.



One-day STEM spectaculars – where teams play qualifying matches, competing for industry-judged awards and a spot at the UK champs.



The teams who impress the judges most at their regionals will progress to the championship to showcase their talent and earn national awards.
