 "To transform our culture by creating a world where
science and technology are celebrated and where
young people dream of becoming science and
technology leaders."
Dean Kamen, Founder
 Our mission is 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.
Values - Gracious Professionalism
 Gracious Professionalism is part of the ethos of FIRST. It's a
way of doing things that encourages high-quality work,
emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals
and the community.
 With Gracious Professionalism, fierce competition and
mutual gain are not separate notions. Gracious
professionals learn and compete like crazy, but treat one
another with respect and kindness in the process. They
avoid treating anyone like losers. No chest thumping tough
talk, but no sticky-sweet platitudes either. Knowledge,
competition, and empathy are comfortably blended.
 In the long run, Gracious Professionalism is part of
pursuing a meaningful life. One can add to society and
enjoy the satisfaction of knowing one has acted with
integrity and sensitivity.
Values - Coopertition
 Coopertition produces innovation. At FIRST,
Coopertition is displaying unqualified kindness and
respect in the face of fierce competition. Coopertition
is founded on the concept and a philosophy that teams
can and should help and cooperate with each other
even as they compete.
Coopertition involves learning from teammates. It is
teaching teammates. It is learning from Mentors. And
it is managing and being managed. Coopertition
means competing always, but assisting and enabling
others when you can.
