Mark Hamill and some of his friends from the Star Wars universe helped break the news in an announcement video. This year’s event will be sports and fitness-themed and students around the world will compete in robotics challenges. They will also be exploring what it means to be “forces for change” by revolutionizing the way everyone plays and moves so people of all abilities and skill levels can participate.
FIRST is a global nonprofit organization that reaches more than 679,000 students in over 100 countries. This program allows 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.
