WHAT WE DO
“...to transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.”
— Dean Kamen, Founder of FIRST Robotics
FIRST is a non-profit international organization that develops ways to inspire students in engineering and technology fields by robotics competitions. It promotes a philosophy of teamwork and collaboration among engineers and encourages competing teams to remain friendly, helping each other out when necessary.
Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, FIRST is the ultimate Sport for the Mind.
