Everybody has to be able to participate in a future that they want to live for. That’s what technology can do.

Dean Kamen, founder of FIRST

FIRST® inspires young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
