We start at the beginning, as FIRST founder Dean Kamen explains what FIRST is, and why he created it. Then we meet the teams, learning first-hand what it takes to build one of these robots and make it to the World Championship.
We learn how FIRST is changing the perception that STEM is just a boys’ club. And then we take a look at how FIRST opens up career options for the students involved and we catch up with some FIRST alumni to find out how they’re doing in the market.
Any sporting event must have a winner and after all, this is the World Championship. We catch up with the team taking home top honors and we look to the future to find out what big changes are in store for next year’s championship.
