NYC FIRST administers a set of robotics programs that serve over 4,000 students from kindergarten through high school. We are pleased to serve the five boroughs of New York City and its surrounding areas of Westchester and Long Island. FIRST programs invite school and community groups to build teams that perform and present research on the challenges that face the scientific community. Teams manufacture complex robots that meet design constraints and cultivate leadership, communication, and teamwork skills necessary for the next generation of problem-solvers. NYC FIRST events draw from the excitement of gadget conventions and sporting events to foster a fan culture from its audience of supporters. FIRST teams showcase their research and their outreach, and participate in challenges that demonstrate excellence in design and execution. We are proud to work with FIRST teams and with the New York City community to promote hardworking teams and welcome a rich and rewarding relationship among ambitious students and role models in the professional world. NYC FIRST is supported by generous sponsors that value the graciousness and the professionalism of every FIRST participant.

  • The activities for which I intend to use any items received through ClassWish are legal and fall within the standards of my state and/or local board or department of education, and the policies of my school or, in the case of FIRST Robotics team leaders, fall within the standards of FIRST Robotics;
  • All information I provide to ClassWish is accurate, and I will promptly update the information to keep it accurate;
  • Any Requests I submit and any funding or items I receive are solely for use in my classroom and/or school, or in the case of FIRST Robotics team leaders are solely for use by my FIRST team, and any items I request through ClassWish will not be for my or anyone else’s personal use;
  • I agree that any items provided to me by ClassWish shall become and remain the property of (i) the school to which ClassWish has them delivered, and I will not take such items to another school, or (ii) in the case of a FIRST Robotics team such items provided to me by ClassWish or purchased with funds provided to me by ClassWish shall become and remain the property of the FIRST Robotics team or, if such is dissolved, shall become the property of FIRST Robotics.
  • I commit to including in my Wish Lists and Requests only items that will benefit my students’ education, including extracurricular activities, and to use any items that I receive from ClassWish only for such purposes.
  • I agree that in the event that ClassWish determines that any items I received through ClassWish are not being used in accordance with these Eligibility Requirements, I will return such items to ClassWish at my expense. In the case of FIRST teams, ClassWish may rely on the determination of FIRST Robotics in this regard.
