Q: How do I get my child on a FIRST team?

A: Unfortunately, FIRST affiliate partners do not act as a clearinghouse to connect students with existing teams.  Additionally, each team operates differently and may have restrictions on whether or not participants have to be concurrently involved in their school, program, or organization.

The following are community-based organizations in Maryland that may be able to connect you with their existing teams or offer open sign-ups for community members:
