About The Orange Alliance

We empower and support the next generation of innovators and leaders. We're building our future.

The Orange Alliance is best way to scout, watch, and relive FIRST Tech Challenge. We empower students to achieve their full potential.

We continually strive to make The Orange Alliance an even more valuable resource for our users. If you would like to help out, have any questions, or have suggests feel free to reach out to us through Discord or contact us at contact@theorangealliance.org.

The Orange Alliance was inspired by The Blue Alliance, but we are not affiliated.

About FIRST®

FIRST® is the world’s leading youth-serving nonprofit advancing STEM education. Through a suite of inclusive, team-based robotics programs for ages 4-18 and backed by a global network of mentors, coaches, volunteers, alumni, and sponsors, FIRST has a proven impact on learning, interest, and skill-building inside and outside of the classroom.

FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and program their robots to compete on a 12' X 12' field, in an alliance format, against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and programmed using Java-based programming languages. Teams, including students, coaches, and mentors, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles, such as rapid prototyping. Awards are earned for the competition, as well as community outreach, robot design, and other real-world accomplishments.
