What is FIRST?
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen, inventor of groundbreaking medical devices as well as the Segway Human Transporter. Kamen's vision is to inspire in young people, their schools, and communities, an appreciation of science and technology, and to show how mastering these skills can enrich the lives of all. It is an international non-profit organization that aspires to "transform culture, making STEM, science, technology, engineering and math, as cool for kids as sports are today."
