For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, FIRST is a not-for- profit public charity which designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.

“FIRST Is more than robots. The robots are a vehicle for students to learn important life skills. They leave, even after the first season, with a VISION, with CONFIDENCE, and with a sense that they can create their own FUTURE.” – Dean Kamen, FIRST Founder
