FIRST is a K12 robotics program founded by Dean Kamen (of Segway fame) that is designed to get kids interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM for short). In Memphis, there are a number of First Lego League Teams (30+), 14 First Robotics Competition teams and a few First Tech Challenge teams. All need mentors to help design, build and program robots. There is also an FLL Championship at the University of Memphis and a number of FRC Events to help the students with their robots.
