Disney and Lucasfilm have teamed up with FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) for the latest Force For Change, to inspire kids around the world to take part in robotics challenges.
In this year’s sports and fitness-themed season, students around the world will compete in robotics challenges, exploring what it means to. Be “forces for change” by revolutionizing the way we play and move so people of all abilities and skill levels can participate.
The ongoing collaboration with FIRST, a global community that reaches more than 679,000 students in over 100 countries, enables Disney and Lucasfilm to expand access to science, technology, engineering and math learning to more young people around the world to help them envision a brighter, more inclusive future.
The Star Wars: Force for Change philanthropic initiative provides students with financial, in-kind and mentorship resources. For more than two decades, Walt Disney Imagineering has provided sponsorship and mentorship to FIRST with unique educational opportunities that feature Star Wars characters, stories and experiences, some even inspired by the adventures found inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
