Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

Background Statement

Founded by Dean Kamen in 1989 to inspire an appreciation of science and technology in young people, their schools and communities, FIRST® offers youth development programs focused in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for elementary to high school students.  

FIRST continuum of programs builds and strengthens the technology workforce pipeline in communities where programs exist.

By successfully forming coalitions with corporations, universities, and public schools FIRST has become the premiere after-school engineering and robotics competition program in the nation.

Impact Statement

Brandeis University’s Center for Youth and Communities conducted an independent, retrospective survey of FIRST Robotics Competition participants and compared results to a group of non-FIRST students with similar backgrounds and academic experiences, including math and science. Highlights of the study’s findings include:

When compared with the comparison group, FIRST students are:

  • More than 3 times as likely to major specifically in engineering.
  • Roughly 10 times as likely to have had an apprenticeship, internship, or co-op job in their freshman year.
  • Significantly more likely to expect to achieve a post graduate degree.
  • More than twice as likely to expect to pursue a career in science and technology.
  • Nearly 4 times as likely to expect to pursue a career specifically in engineering.
  • More than twice as likely to volunteer in their communities.

Needs Statement

Donations of all levels are gratefully accepted and tax deductible.  Your generous donation to FIRST will help ensure thousands of students have access to the unique learning experiences we offer through our programs.By making your unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund,you will allow FIRST the flexibility to allocate funds where they are most needed, including to regional events, teams, and operational expenses.

Board Chair Statement

"...We need only to ignite youthful passion for the wonders and joys of science and technology. But not enough of those young people will stay in school. Or go on to college. Or find a mentor to guide them. That’s why the “cool factor” of FIRST, which attracts young people, has been and will continue to be so important. Its future is self-sustaining.  Our “secret sauce” is inspiration…fueling one generation’s imagination to spark the next. As adults, thousands of students who come through the program re-ignite the passion in their communities, schools, and corporations.”

LEGO® League (FLL) is an international robotics program in partnership with The LEGO® Group that serves children ages 9 – 14. FLL has two major components: a robot game, where teams of up to 10 students design, build, and program autonomous robots that must perform a series of tasks or missions; and a research project where teams conduct research and present their findings to a panel of judges at tournaments. The research project focuses on common problems faced by communities and nurtures scientific discovery, writing and presentation skills, as well as service to the community.

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC)

(FRC) is FIRST’s original and signature program. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. Volunteer STEM professionals serving as mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.


The FRC season culminates in March with regional tournaments that cap weeks of intense work and offer students the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and learn from others. Students test their strategies, teamwork and robotic creations in a high-pressure competitive environment, which FIRST prefers to call Each tournament includes an average of 45 teams (students and mentors), plus parents, teachers, sponsors, and university and government officials.

FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC)

FIRST® Tech Challenge – (FTC) is a more accessible program that is less expensive. Encapsulated components make implementation easier for coaches/teachers- particularly those without technology education background, and the program requires fewer additional resources from outside a normal classroom. FTC is designed for small teams of up to 10 high school aged students who work with one or two dedicated mentors to design, program, and build a robot, using an off-the-shelf kit.

Junior FIRST®LEGO® League -(Jr.FLL)

Focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-9, Jr.FLL was introduced in 2004. It is a hands-on program designed to capture young children's inherent curiosity and direct it toward discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them.  Just likeFIRSTLEGO League (FLL), this program features a real-world challenge (the same theme as FLLeach year), to be solved by research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches and the Jr.FLL Core Values, students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review. Through Jr.FLL children learn the concepts of teamwork and basic design skills, and gain a hands-on approach to science and technology.

After a series of promotions at JDSU, he became Vice President and General Manager for JDSU Electro-Optics Products. The Division grew tenfold during his involvement there. Bossi next served as Group President of JDSU Active Components Group for two years, and then as Group President, JDSU Transmission Products Group for two years. In 2005, Bossi joined Technology Ventures Partners to work with their high-tech portfolio companies. While at the venture group, he served as the CEO of Aegis Lightware, Inc. and then as CEO of Inlet Technologies, positioning the company for a beneficial acquisition by Cisco. Most recently, Bossi served as the COO of CIDRA Holdings in Wallingford, Conn.

Bossi is the holder of four U.S. patents and author of numerous technical presentations. He holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and has completed executive education courses at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
