Thank you, FIRST Supporters!

In honor of National Nonprofit Day, dedicated to recognizing the missions and positive impacts nonprofits have on communities and the world, we wanted to take a moment to thank all who fuel the FIRST mission to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators. We wouldn’t be able to make our global youth impact without the incredible support of donors, sponsors, and volunteers. Thank you!
OUR VISION: “ transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.”
