FIRST invites teams of students to apply for the Rookie Grant for interest in science & technology

FIRST®, (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), is a not-for-profit organization founded by inventor Dean Kamen to inspire young people’s interest in science and technology.  The FIRST® Tech Challenge program is not only about science, but about team work and community involvement. Through their participation, student team members develop problem-solving, organization, and team-building skills, among other valuable life skills. FIRST invites new teams of students (grades 7-12) from across North America to apply for the 2014-2015 Rookie Grant.  Learn more here: http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/ftc
