FIRST is a non-profit organization that stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, and was founded in 1989.  For students in grades 8-12, FIRST is one of the most rewarding, hard-working fun that you’ll ever gain. For team mentors, coaches, and volunteers, it’s the most worthwhile experience you’ll undertake. FIRST is devoted to helping young peoples discover and develop a passion for science, engineering, technology, and math. Participating teams will win recognition, gain self-confidence, develop people and life skills, make new friends, and perhaps discover an unforeseen career path.
