FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) helps students build STEM skills, confidence, teamwork, public speaking skills, and make connections with professionals. I am glad to be part of this effort as a volunteer Coach and mentor for both the First Lego League Jr, and First Lego League Championship. Had to work quite hard to earn this one, but definitely worth it.
The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
