Founded in 1989, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an international nonprofit organization that elevates young people to become science and technology leaders. The organization's mission is to inspire students through hands-on programs that challenge them to be innovative, take risks, work as a team, serve their community, think critically, communicate effectively and solve complex problems. Today it has evolved into a phenomenon that reaches all corners of the world giving opportunities to countless students and future leaders.
