According to TIME, there are more than 135 million makers in America who pump over $29 million into the economy each year. And these figures don’t even account for people under 18 years old. At FIRST, we know there are plenty. As we look to the future, it is increasingly important to empower the next generation of artisans, craftsman, tinkerers, entrepreneurs, and innovators who will help solve the world’s greatest challenges.
