FIRST Tech Challenge – Kick off the 2019-2020 season with SOLIDWORKS

The 2019-2020 season, FIRST® RISESMpowered by Star Wars: Force for Change, is setting out to inspire citizens of the galaxy. Throughout history, great civilizations have risen, then fallen. Now it’s our turn to rise—building and bolstering our own planetary metropolis. The Force is building.

What if you could build a better world? Where would you begin? These are the questions students will be asking to prepare for this year’s FIRST Tech Challenge SKYSTONESM Presented by Qualcomm.
