Our History


What is FIRST?

FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. It is a international organization devoted to helping kids (like us!) understand the wonders of Science and Technology. Their vision is, "To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes."

FIRST currently has four programs up and running; Jr. First Lego League (ages 6 – 9), First Lego League (ages 9 -13), First Tech Challenge (high school), and First Robotics Competition (high school).  Every year, a new challenge is given to each of these programs and a new robot must be built and programmed in order to succeed.
