  • As the sense of urgency is being raised…and more people seeking effective action steps….FIRST is well positioned to make a very compelling case it is an effective part of solution… Freidman called for inspiring young people to pursue education in S&T….FIRST does exactly that…
  • Friedman also called for young people to discover the rewards of careers in S&T…FIRST does exactly that.

  • For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology FIRST ® Overview Seaside Robotics Team 3673
  • Team 3673 Seaside High School Cyborg Seagulls Creative Young Brains Observing Redefining Greatness
    • Vision
    • “ To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes .”
    • Dean Kamen, Founder
    I. Vision & Mission Mission To inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
    • Organization &
    • Programs
    FIRST Learning… never stops building upon itself, starting at age six and continuing through middle and high-school levels up to age eighteen. Young people can join at any level. Participants master skills and concepts to aid in learning science and technology through robotics.
  • Gracious Professionalism
    • We learn and compete like crazy, but treat one another with respect and kindness in the process.
    • “ Sport for the Mind™,” combining the excitement of sport with science and technology
    • Problem solving and creativity with new challenges every year
    • Teams of young people with mentors
    • A tight timeline to learn efficiency and effectiveness
    • A value system based on “Gracious Professionalism TM ,” “Teamwork,” and “Coopertition TM ”
    II. Organization & Programs
  • II. Organization & Programs
    • Mission is to INSPIRE , not EDUCATE
    • BUT look at what is involved :
      • Math (algebra, geometry, trig, calculus)
      • Science (physics, chemistry, experimentation)
      • Language arts (writing, public speaking)
      • Business (marketing, PR, fundraising)
      • Finance (accounting)
      • Computer Science (programming, 3D animation)
      • Fabrication (woodworking, metalworking)
      • Mentorship: Working side-by-side with professionals
      • Teamwork
  • Growth
    • Combines the excitement of sport with science and technology
    • Creates a unique varsity Sport for the Mind™
    • Grade 9-12 students (ages 14-18) discover the value of education and careers in science, technology, and engineering
    • New game each year
    • Common kit of parts
    • 6-week build period
