FIRST = For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology
To inspire young people to become 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.
SERVING THE NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS IN NEVADA
FIRST Nevada programs benefit the community by increasing STEM knowledge and 21st century work-life skills of its youth participants, with the ultimate goal of increasing the local STEM workforce pipeline. FIRST programs provide actual hands-on experiences which put into practice what students learn in the classroom, engaging them and making learning relevant. Our programs incorporate best-practice strategies to engage youth and cultivate interest in STEM. We seek to involve as many children from grades K-12 as possible. In science and technology industries, minorities and women are typically underrepresented. At FIRST Nevada, we welcome and encourage these underserved groups in our programs.
