FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) begins in elementary school (age six) and continues through middle school and high school to provide access to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education. As more and more jobs depend on employees with strong STEM skills, today’s students need to acquire those skills. FIRST provides inquiry-based avenues into the STEM world, by providing innovative programs that build self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in these areas of study. FIRST offers four separate programs from Junior FIRST LEGOÒ League (grades K-3) to FIRST Robotics Competition (High School), students apply real-world math and science concepts, research challenges, and develop team-building skills.
