FIRST works! The FIRST continuum includes the FIRST Robotics Competition, where Mentors guide students as they build giant robots to be the best at the ever-changing field game. However, FIRST is not only about robots; it's about learning. On my team 217, The Thunder Chickens, I learned how to code from our Mentors. FIRST gave me the skills and confidence to help change lives in my community. As a result, I was inspired to create Hello World, a tech camp to help close the gender gap in engineering and introduce more girls to computer science.
