What is First Robotics ?

FIRST®, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, is a charitable organization founded by the inventor of the insulin pump and other medical devices, Dean Kamen. The goal of FIRST is to promote the fields of science and technology and encourage students to consider further education and careers in science, technology and engineering. FIRST aims to make science and technology as cool and exciting as athletics and music through engaging, hands on programs for various age levels covering elementary school through high school. Along the way FIRST also establishes the idea of Gracious Professionalism™, the belief that you can perform at your highest level while simultaneously helping others achieve their best too. FIRST encourages community engagement as one method of introducing others to the fun of science and technology. Spanning the globe with thousands of international teams, tens of thousands of students and mentors, and currently celebrating its 10th year of science and technology excellence in Canada and its 20th anniversary in the United States, FIRST is a dynamic organization inspiring the science and technology leaders of tomorrow to reach new heights.
