Register with FIRST

As you work through your 30 Day Challenge on ChangeX, you can go ahead and register officially with the FIRST to participate in the current CARGO CONNECTSM season! You can register through this link.

Once you've registered, you'll receive a welcome email from the FIRST team and your Class Pack provides enough equipment for 8 children containing:

  • Team Meeting Guide:  This comprehensive guide is printed and available digitally in the FIRST Learning Management System in Thinkscape and provides facilitators with guidance and lesson plans on how to run the 10 sessions and the culminating event celebration. It includes expected student outcomes, educator tips, connected vocabulary, and playful learning and FIRST Core Values connections.
  • Engineering Notebooks:  These printed student workbooks are also available digitally and provide open spaces to write and draw ideas to the provided prompts. One page of the notebook is filled in during two classes and children can use their engineering notebooks at their final event to share what they created. Additional Engineering Notebooks can be purchased in bundles of 10, up to three bundles per Class Pack.
  • For the best experience, if more than three bundles are needed, please order an additional FIRST LEGO League Discover Class Pack.
  • Session Slides:  A session-by-session series of slides that contain real-world connections such as videos, images, and helpful questions to guide students through each session.
  • Discover Sets:  These sets include an exclusive set of LEGO ®  DUPLO ®  elements students will use as a starting point to explore how STEM relates to their world as they create an obstacle course.
  • Discover More Family Engagement Sets:  LEGO ®  Six Bricks take-home sets for each student to extend and reinforce their habits of learning at home.
