The EASA program is constructed on the reality that skill or academic knowledge alone is no longer sufficient for surviving and thriving in a 21st century world and economy. In response, the EASA approach is to provide a program where students can learn how they will use the academic content by applying that learning in simulations, real projects, and problems. Students will have the opportunity to discover relationships among math, science, communications, and technology, as well as build skills with design, sketching (both in notebooks and through computer programs), and working in teams.
FIRST Tech Challenge team members collaborate to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head tournament competition with over 600 teams around Oregon. More information can be found at:
