An introduction to First

The FIRST program (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) pairs high schoolers with engineers and other school/community volunteers and has them design, build, and compete in large scale competitions. Provides for early introductions into the real-life world of science, technology, and robot building/competition that the youngsters would not have normally been exposed to.

    FIRST is fun! I volunteered last year at the Boston Regional Competition as a Robot Inspector. I had a great time! It made me wish I had participated in FIRST during high school! I also coached a Junior FIRST Lego Lego league team this past fall. Basically, I had six first through third graders ignoring me and playing with Lego’s! Good times!
