Partner with us

We want to create a world where all young people have access to industry linked STEM education, enrichment and career opportunities. Help us get there faster.

Donate time

We rely on employees from all sectors to mentor teams and volunteer at events, passionate about sharing their diverse range of skills and backgrounds required in tomorrow’s workplace.

We make employee engagement impactful. From company-wide initiatives, targeted early careers development, single-day event volunteering, and continuous mentoring, there’s a role for everyone.

Talk to us

“What makes FIRST even more valuable to Arm is that they’re working hard to increase engagement with student demographics that might have initially ruled out tech and robotics as being for them.”

Mentor a team

Donating a few hours per month (Sep-Mar) mentors work alongside teachers stewarding teams as they design and build a robot. Helping them seek out answers and overcome challenges.

Volunteer at events

Not everyone can devote regular time but most can offer ad-hoc support. We rely on a squad of passionate Game Changers from all backgrounds to help deliver robotics events across the country.

Give money and resource

Not everyone can be a Premier League footballer, but we believe every young person has the potential to ‘go pro’ in STEM. Our partners do awesome things like:

  • Invest in direct provision
  • Sponsor events
  • Donate gift-in-kind
  • Increase our reach and influence

For less than £10 per impact hour, you can invest in the young people who will transform the future, make STEM more inclusive, and drive your talent pipeline.

Magnetic experientials

Our mini robotics challenges demystify STEM  and drive engagement amongst employees and young people. Our robot maze and coding against the clock challenges will be a sure hit at your next science fair, conference or away day.

Bye bye tokenistic volunteerism, hello impact engagement.
