FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a nonprofit organization founded by inventor Dean Kamen. The vision of FIRST is to create a world that celebrates science and engineering, and encourages young people to pursue a career in these fields. Each year, FIRST presents teams with a unique challenge that pushes them to their creative limits, sparking the development of fundamental engineering skills such as analytical problem solving, cooperative brainstorming, task management, and experience in fabrication and machining. The team works with alumni, parent mentors, and professional engineers in an intense six-week period to create a robot for the new competition.
