FIRST is on a global mission with teams in 110 countries and over 679,000 students participating in the 2019-2020 season. The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people (ages 4-18) to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based research and robotics programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills while equipping them with the confidence to be leaders in their schools and communities.
FIRST was founded by Dean Kamen, a prolific inventor, entrepreneur, and tireless advocate for science and technology. His passion and determination to help young people discover the excitement and rewards of science and technology are the cornerstones of FIRST. For over 30 years, Mr. Kamen has resolutely led the growth of FIRST to where it is now universally recognized as the leading, not-for-profit STEM engagement program for kids worldwide.
