Thank you for supporting the world’s next generation of STEAM leaders and innovators!

Help us ignite a passion for STEAM in the youth of the world. Kids all over the world need to see the power and accessibility of STEAM, a tool they can use to create their own careers and positive environments to improve their standard of living and quality of life. By donating to FIRST Global, you are directly impacting the lives of youth around the globe.


“What we’re doing here is not using kids to build robots. We’re using robots to build kids who have self-confidence, imagination, courage, vision, and skills to do important things.” —Dean Kamen, FIRST Global Founder
