The Play Space is a program of Playing At Learning. The space serves as a home for all of FIRST in Northern California.

The Play Space is the first of its kind in the world; a home for the entire range of FIRST programs, FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and Jr. FIRST LEGO League (JrFLL).

The space serves as a focal point for more than 600 youth robotics teams, representing at least 5000 students, all engaged in learning about STEM careers.   We have a mission to particularly reach and support the under-represented and under-served in Northern California.  

During the school year, The Play Space serves as a resources for teams participating in the FIRST family  of programs. Weekend tournaments for FLL and FTC, Expos for Jr. FLL, practice days for FRC all take place during the school year.

As summer rolls around, The Play Space becomes a source for learning about robotics with several weeks of camps/classes for interested students.
