PD MiSTEM/FIRST in Michigan/Argosy Grant
Please complete this form if your high school does not have a high school FIRST team and you'd like to attend a two-day Professional Development course to learn what the FIRST high school program is all about. The training is offered through a partnership with FIRST in Michigan / MiSTEM / Argosy Foundation.

There are a limited number of spots available.

First priority will be given to high schools that do not currently have a FIRST Robotics Competition team. Any spots that remain open will be filled with new coaches from high school teams that already exist.

While this course is not offered to teachers interested in starting a middle school or elementary FIRST team, we do have grants that include free kits and free registration fees for newly forming middle school and late elementary teams.
- To start or learn more about starting a middle school team, please contact Tammy Damrath at michiganftc@gmail.com.
- To start or learn more about starting a late elementary team, please contact Angela Hite at michiganflll@gmail.com.i
