Review for FIRST, Manchester, NH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

FIRST is an amazing organization and was just what my son was looking for in an extracurricular activity. My son has always loved science and was looking for more than school offered. We became involved with FIRST robotics when my son was in 4th grade. I became a mentor and worked with some great mentors to help the team find their passion in robotics and science. The students on the team learned to work as a team, to brainstorm and research a problem, build and program a robot, and present their research and solution to a problem in a creative way. I saw all of the students blossom. Their self esteem, organization, perserverance, and sense of community with others interested in science grew through the process of friendly competition through FIRST.
