Acclimating to COVID-19, the competition in 2021 was both virtual and in person.


We are very proud to announce we placed #23 worldwide.

As the pandemic continued to impact the world, the challenge for 2021 was mostly virtual. The theme for this year is Discover and Recover as a way to remind everyone that STEM can provide solutions for global problems like COVID-19 and also help counter the after-effects that communities are feeling.

This year FIRST Global sent a kit for the remote competition. As we became more comfortable following safety protocols students met in-person when needed, at the new Regional STEM Center - always with caution. We excitedly received our mentor Alan Ostrow, from the U.S once more to help introduce our newest team members become to FIRST Global. What a great time!

Staff members Minsis Ramos and Jessy Molina helped lead this year. From our communities, we had teacher mentors as well as alumni mentors joining us once more. And for the first time, we invited a new municipality to join- San Antonio. We now have students and mentors from 3 different towns of our Frontera region. We strategically created sub-teams this year to help divide responsibilities and give every members a chance to lead the entire group. As always we remind students that many skills are developed by participating from STEM to leadership to task management.

This hybrid model allowed students to be more hands on this year. You can view their progress and results on the team's Facebook page and read the competition blog.
