FIRST® Robotics Club


The Western New England FIRST Robotics initiative was established by a committee that includes University faculty and students as well as community volunteers and leaders. The Initiative’s mission is to become a hub for recruitment, knowledge sharing, resource management, and skills development for local community and K-12 STEM and robotics programs. This will be accomplished by mentoring current FIRST teams, starting new teams within the Springfield School District, and hosting competitions on campus to better serve Springfield’s diverse and underrepresented K-12 student population.


Western New England University has founded a FIRST club on campus which is student led and student driven. They are the driving force that makes it possible to mentor existing teams and start new teams.

The Club includes and is constantly recruiting students from all disciplines with varying backgrounds.
