About Central TX FIRST®
Central TX FIRST® is a volunteer organization dedicated to bringing a love of science and technology to the students of Central Texas through FIRST® programs! Supported by FIRST in Texas, Central TX FIRST® supports FLL and FLL Jr. teams from San Marcos to Waco, and San Angelo to College Station, with Austin as the region’s epicenter.
It’s our hope to continue to support the growth of FIRST® programs in Central TX, through outreach, volunteer events, and hosting more tournaments and expos!
FIRST® is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization devoted to helping young people discover and develop a passion for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Founded more than 20 years ago by inventor Dean Kamen, the 2014-2015 FIRST season attracted more than 400,000 youth and more than 90,000 Mentors, Coaches, and Volunteers from more than 70 countries. The annual programs culminate in an international robotics competition and celebration where teams win recognition, gain self-confidence, develop people and life skills, make new friends, and perhaps discover an unforeseen career path.
