Review for FIRST, Manchester, NH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I know it's a cliche but FIRST has absolutely changed my life! It has given me a great sense of purpose and self worth. I fully dedicated my life to the program and see no end to my dedication. I have never met a group of kinder, driven and capable people in my life! It will not save the world but is a great resource for anyone who is involved!

Review for FIRST, Manchester, NH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with FIRST Robotics for 12 years.
While I no longer FIRST will save the world from itself (our problems are too diverse and deep for any one size fits all solution) I do believe FIRST is one of the best tools to help you cope with the uncertain future facing our youth.
The level of professionalism this program has is amazing. From the game production. to the distribution of kits to teams to the amazing events. I think the polished production helps FIRST spread the word. It actually comes off as more legit than Battlebots which I felt was more of a disorganized exhibition that a competition.
FIRST not only teaches kids skills that help with STEM activities but life skills as well. Accountability.Responsibility. Integrity. Creativity. Personal growth that will help these students (and often the adults as well) get further in life. I endorse FIRST to anyone who's ear I can mange to catch to tell them about this amazing program.
