North Carolina Advocacy Conference


NCAC is an organization created to spread STEM and the mission of FIRST in North Carolina through advocacy. We bring students involved in FIRST together to advocate for government support of STEM on both a state and local level, meeting at a yearly summit at the North Carolina capital.


FIRST Robotics is a student-led program for bright kids of all ages, created to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders. FIRST builds science, engineering, and technology skills that inspire innovation and foster well-rounded life skills, including such as self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
