❝For me, STEM is not just an acronym, it is a community. A community and family of learners who are eager, open minded, and willing to understand others’ opinions and perspectives. It is a place where you can showcase your talents, work on your passions, and find your true calling. Just like any family, you have to invest time and energy into it. STEM is an investment into the future. Although we cannot predict the future, having great STEM skills will allow us to be prepared for anything.❞ —Lance, Team Belize ??

Team Madagascar ?? What STEM Means

STEM gathers all people around the world. So whatever our age, gender, or nationality, we can all be a STEM warrior. Thanks to FIRST Global, even youth like me can interchange and know better about STEM. For me, we can do great things with STEM because in STEM, we’re not only building robots, we also explore and discover new things, like the beauty of the universe and its secrets. We learn something new, and share them to others. We also solve multiple problems… STEM gives us the power to understand and change the world, so let’s be curious; let’s ignite our imagination and creativity and build together a new world, a safe world, and a better world for everyone.❞ —Zo-Hary, Team Madagascar ??
