What is the FIRST Global Competition?

The FIRST Global Challenge connects students from all over the world in their Robotic Olympics. Each year, they choose a different Grand Engineering Challenge and base the competition around it. In 2017, the challenge, entitled H20 Flow, was about clean water and the 2018 challenge, entitled Energy Impact, was about solar energy. The 2019 challenge is centered around pollutants in the ocean and is entitled Ocean Opportunities.

Meet Kameron Young
2017 & 2018 FIRST Global Participant




My name is Kameron Young. I have attended two FIRST Global Competitions during 2017, in Washington DC, and 2018, in Mexico City. I have been one of the coders, builders and team-elected captain for Team Bermuda. My goals are to give other students the opportunity I had and build a team with the same drive and passion to compete on the global stage. The FIRST Global Competition is a great opportunity not only to learn about technology but also to expand your network in the field. As a member of Team Bermuda, you will develop your skills in robotics and coding while also learning how to be a team player. Are you ready to leave your mark globally? Become a member of TEAM BERMUDA!
