About us & Contact
Our organization FIRST Japan was founded in 2004 with its aim to inspire young people in next generation for science and technology and providing them opportunity to get access and experience the world of science and technology.
Specifically, we are holding domestic championships of FIRST® LEGO® League Jr., FIRST® LEGO® League and FIRST Global in Japan.
We held FIRST® LEGO® League International event in Tokyo in 2008, and we have been focusing on international educational programs and fostering global human resources since then.
We emphasize that it’s essential to have whole society around them involved in order to support children’s growth, we propose a mechanism of how local society and schools can positively support our program.
With collaboration of various organizations such as schools, local societies, private enterprises and citizen groups, we provide opportunities for children to have fun and experience good aspect of science and technology and we aim to have them learn by themselves and that enrich their life.
From the perspective of intergenerational exchange and regional revitalization, we positively welcome volunteers and supports from local enterprises and aim to implement study support area.
We aim that our contribution would work on promotion of science and technology, academic and cultural activities and children’s growth, and foster the leaders of science in next generation.
