FIRST® is a not-for-profit organization that designs fun, motivational programs to help young people grades K-12 discover and develop a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through challenging robotics competitions. What’s FIRST ?
The Mission of FIRST to inspire youth to be the science and technology leaders of tomorrow by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build their skills, inspire innovation, and foster well rounded life capabilities including self confidence.
What do we do? Build a robot in 6 -weeks! 1.Concept 2.Design 3.Prototype 4.Fabrication 5.Build Playing Field 6.Build Robot 7.Programming 8.Practice 9.Bag
How does FIRST FRC work? Inspires and Invokes the following skills: – Science (physics, chemistry, experimentation) – Technology (IT, programming, 3D animation) – Engineering (idea generation, innovation, problem solving, design) – Math (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus) – Fabrication (woodworking, metalworking, NC machining) – Language Arts (writing, public speaking) – Business (marketing, public relations, fundraising, accounting) – Personal Development (self confidence) – Mentorship (working side-by-side with professionals) – Teamwork (leadership, project management, time management) – Gracious Professionalism® (treating others with dignity and respect) – Coopertition® (working together while competing like crazy)
FIRST Impact 50% more likely to attend College. 3x more likely to major in Engineering. 9x more likely to have an internship in their Freshman year. 4x more likely to pursue a career in Engineering. 2.5x more likely to volunteer in the community
It’s life changing. It’s opportunity. It’s community. It’s a competitive sport. It’s awesome! It’s amazing. It’s hard fun! It’s a good investment
