HSDB is a member of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), an organization founded in 1989 to inspire young people’s interest and participation in science and technology. Students in grades 4-8 participate in the FIRST LEGO LEAGUE. These students research a real-world engineering challenge, develop a solution, and compete with LEGO-based robots of their own design. Older students in grades 7-12 participate in the FIRST TECH CHALLENGE. These students are challenged to design, build, and program a robot to play a floor game against other teams’ creations.
