 Personal Stories

"The reason I have most of the friends that I do is because of this robotics team. I moved here from another state and didn't know anybody at first, but as soon as I met the people on this team I had friends."

— Michael S. 

"I didn't even imagine I would ever become interested in machining and coding before I joined the school robotics team. By joining FIRST, I've met many people, even new friends across the world, politicians, and professionals. FIRST gives me the opportunity to teach other people and to participate in something extremely exciting and fun. FIRST has become part of my life that's not replaceable anymore; I am so glad that my friend invited me when I was a sophomore.“
