New Website Helps Students Find a FIRST Team

Posted 28 Oct 2007 at 22:25 UTC by steve Share This

If you're a student who'd like to join a FIRST robotics team but your school doesn't participate, there's a new website just for you. The new website, called First Objective, can help you find a team at a nearby school or even help you get a team organized at your own school. Roger Smith wrote to tell us how he started the site to solve a problem for his own kids, "I am the father of two high-school students that are involved in FIRST. Our school does not have a team, so we work with a neighboring school, and I am a mentor on that team. I have been working real hard to get a team started in our school, and hopefully get more teams started in a lot of schools. I've created a website devoted to bringing together people in the FIRST community with educators and school administrators. I'm using the Internet to provide video content along with forums and blogs to help bring these groups together." Robotics is becoming an important route to getting kids interested in math, science, and engineering, so stop by and offer to help out with Roger's efforts if you get a chance.
