To be eligible for a ‘refer a friend’ voucher, both the referring and the referred teams must register before the season kicks off in September 2019. This offer is limited to 1 referral per team. Vouchers are non-transferable. Referred teams must not have previously participated in FIRST Tech Challenge. The referred team must include the name of the referrer and the referrer’s organisation when completing the registration form. Referral vouchers will be issued in September 2019 and can be used to purchase additional parts for your team at our online partner REV Robotics. FIRST UK reserves the right to issue the voucher as 100USD rather than 75GBP.

Available to non-fee-paying institutions that have not previously participated.

We're on a mission to make STEM accessible to all.
