FIRST values are built on two main concepts, Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition. Together these values are about lending a helping hand to an opponent and likewise learning from them.
This year we’re introducing Challenge Academies. A Challenge Academy is a mid-season event in which teams come together, share ideas, and network with each other.
During a Challenge Academy, the host venue runs simulated Robot Game matches using nearly the same standards as an official FIRST LEGO League tournament event. The host venue also provides opportunities for teams to receive feedback on the various judging areas. Challenge Academies are designed for teams to demonstrate Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition prior to an official qualifier event by sharing their mid-season accomplishments and learning from their future competition.
