“FIRST believes in enabling young people to grow up to solve the world’s most pressing problems, be strong citizens, and build a brighter future for themselves and their community. A new video from FIRST proclaims “this isn’t a robot, it’s a lesson in humility, hard work and collaboration. It’s cross fit – for the brain. It’s the sport that will help us win tomorrow. It’s software to program ourselves to cure cancer, to build a clean engine or to set foot on Mars. FIRST is a machine to build the people that will change the world. Bold statement yes, but in my opinion not an exaggeration at all,” says Larry Koscielski, Chair of Windsor Essex FIRST Robotics.
