Who Are We?
Systems Engineer, Harris Corp13 Years in FIRST
FIRST’s vision is to positively transform culture by inspiring young people, their schools, and communities to appreciate science and technology.
FIRST designs accessible, innovative programs that build not only science and technology skills and interests but also self-confidence, leadership and life skills.
“…to create a world where science and technology are celebrated…
…where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes”
How It Works
“…It’s like life. You never have enough information. You never have enough time. The kit of materials is what you have in the warehouse. There are always competing things and you must have a strategy. We’ve created a microcosm of the real engineering experience.”
