Team Hammond 71

We are Team Hammond 71

FIRSTĀ® is a not-for-profit organization that designs fun, motivational programs to help young people aged 6-18 discover and develop a passion for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through challenging robotics competitions. The mission of FIRST is to inspire youth to be the science and technology leaders of tomorrow by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build their skills, inspire innovation, and foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership. Over 250,000 students and 90,000 adult Mentors and Volunteers from more than 50 countries participate annually. FIRST students qualify for $14 million in college scholarships. All competitions culminate at the annual FIRST Championship. Many of our students continue on to be engineers, teachers and also work in the field of medicine.
