We recognize that some teams may not have access to their robots but will still want to participate in these challenges. As such, the Open Category – Robot Reels! challenge will have a category which does not involve robots. Instead the video can feature team members and a FIRST based theme. Time to show off your truly creative side. Make a FIRST themed video of your team doing something fun that can go viral.

  1. There is no robot requirement for this challenge
  2. The video must be centered around FIRST in some way
  3. Think of the videos that are being put out by influencers and content creators today. Use those for inspiration, and try and emulate them
  4. Examples include (but are not limited to):
      • Make a FIRST themed dance
      • Make a FIRST related skit/short film highlighting FIRST Core Values 
      • Make a FIRST hype/promo video
      • A video highlighting unsung STEM heroes/inventions
      • Make a FIRST song or lip sync video
  5. Set the video to music to add to the energy and hype
      • Think of videos that have gone viral on various platforms. See if you can match that energy!
  6. While we want you to be creative, all actions must be safe. Please use your common sense when partaking in this challenge, and never put any participant at risk!
  7. Videos are limited to 60 seconds

Entries to be judged based on creativity, energy, wow factor, connection to FIRST and videography
