Why FIRST Is a Beneficial Program
Ever since its humble beginnings, the FIRST Organization has made its goal to give students a successful head start on life. Created by its founder Dean Kamen, the FIRST Organization was designed to benefit any and all students who participate. Through years of refinement and practice, this program has truly turned out to be one of the best in the nation. Through this program, students are three times more likely to gain entrance into the fields of engineering or technology. Students are also able to earn scholarships through some of the 750 different scholarship opportunities that FIRST provides. In all, FIRST is truly one of a kind and helps teach students to be successful in life.
Each Program is Specifically Designed
Not all four Branches of FIRST focus on a single audience. Each of the four programs is specifically designed and aimed towards students of a different age group. From ages six to eighteen, this program develops just as the students do. Progressing with time, these programs test the boundaries of team cooperation and competition.
