FIRST Robotics Teams Demonstrate Teamwork at Bosch Thermotechnology Corp.
Written on: August 22, 2016 by ICM
Two teams from FIRST demonstrated their home-built robots for associates of Bosch Thermotechnology Corporation in Londonderry, New Hampshire.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) consists of elementary, middle and high school age youth whose mission is to “… inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, that inspire innovation and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication and leadership.” Founded in 1989 by the inventor and entrepreneur Dean Kamen (inventor of the Segway personal transport device), FIRST is founded on the concept and philosophy that teams should help and cooperate with each other even as they compete.

After each team demonstrated its robot overcoming a series of challenging obstacles, the teams presented Bosch Thermotechnology Regional President Vitor Gregorio with a plaque commemorating Bosch’s support for the FIRST program.
