Great For Students

Studies show FIRST students are more likely to

  • make a successful transition to college,
  • pursue their interests in science, technology and engineering, and
  • become involved and productive members of their communities.

FIRST program participation provides students with a positive experience in a challenging team activity that

  • builds relationships,
  • teaches new skills,
  • drives home the value of teamwork,
  • raises interest in serving others, and
  • helps students build their understanding and interest in science, engineering, technology and related carriers.

  • Twice as likely to major in Science and Engineering (55%)
  • 10 times as likely to have had an apprenticeship, internship, or co-op job in their college freshman year
