FIRST® programs support educators by engaging students in STEM learning and preparing them for the future through hands-on fun while helping kids transfer STEM concepts to real-world applications.

I’m a firm believer in FIRST – it boosts confidence, builds collaborative skills, and is hands-on. It takes the best of pedagogy, and best practices in Education, and brings it all together.
