What is the cost of a FIRST® Tech Challenge team?
Here are some basic cost parameters:
- The FIRST® Tech Challenge team registration is $295 each season.
- FIRST® offers many fundraising tools and teams are encouraged to create their own opportunities. Grants may also be available, as well as sponsorships provided locally, regionally and nationally by many corporations.
- All costs for individual team members are assumed by the team as a group.
Additional cost considerations may include:
- A reusable robot kit of parts required for game play with purchase options starting at about $1,000. Season team registration fee does not include shipping and handling, robot control system hardware, or robot kits.
- Additional fees for registration to local and/or remote FIRST Tech Challenge events. These fees are set and collected by the local Program Delivery Partner. Season team registration does not guarantee events are available in your area.
