Ford, a FIRST® Strategic Partner, has been a longtime supporter of FIRST® through the sponsorship of FRC, FTC and FLL teams, the FIRST in Michigan State Championships, the FIRST Championships, and the Ford Autonomous Award. Our goal is to continue supporting all FIRST programs while creating more opportunities for FIRST participants and alumni.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge and life skills.
FIRST is More Than Robots. FIRST participation is proven to encourage students to pursue education and careers in STEM-related fields, inspire them to become leaders and innovators, and enhance their 21st-century work-life skills.
