#GivingTuesday is right around the corner! We’ve set a fundraising goal of $20,000 to support students all over Washington State participating in our innovative after-school STEM program! 

Join the movement and make a #GivingTuesday gift today!


Four Amazing Programs.  One Amazing Community.

FIRST® Washington is an organization that offers a hands-on learning experience to inspire young people about science, technology, engineering, and math. FIRST® Washington welcomes students and volunteers from all backgrounds and abilities, and work hard to build an inclusive learning community. FIRST® Washington offers the most comprehensive STEM and career connected learning in the state.

FIRST Washington COVID-19 Community Update:

 The health and safety of our community is top of mind for us.  Thus, in keeping with Governor Inslee’s mask amendment and vaccine proclamation, which defines workers as also being volunteers, we will require all “in person” volunteers to be vaccinated by October 18th and to wear a mask for any FIRST Washington meetings or events.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you during the season and appreciate your adherence to these mandates and policies.


Congratulations to all our awards winners this season!
