Outreach
Community Outreach According to Dean Kamen, founder of FIRST, FIRST wishes “to transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders." In order to follow FIRST’s vision, all participating teams are encouraged to instill an appreciation of the real-life rewards and career opportunities to others within their supportive community.
