Help Blackbird send FIRST Robotics teams from Port Macquarie, Wollongong, Melbourne, Helensburgh and Sydney to the World Championships in Houston. It costs around $30k to send a team over and they have 3-4 weeks to raise the money. Donate here https://ignite.mq.edu.au/p/firstrobot…
This is the story of Komplete Kaos, from Helensburgh, NSW. We followed them around during the FIRST Australian Regional Finals. It was a thrilling few days with lots of highs and lows.
FIRST Robotics is far and away the best program we have found that encourages young Australians to get into science and technology. These students will be the future founders we hope to invest in. They represent the best of Australia and we will continue to support the FIRST program for years to come.
The outcomes are just astounding:
FIRST Alumni are 2.6 times more likely to enrol in an Engineering Course at university.
75% of FIRST Alumni are in a STEM field as a student or professional.
In Australia, Macquarie University guarantees FIRST Alumni a place in one of their engineering courses.
