FIRST Robotics

FIRST Robotics mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

Dow values the hands on experiences youth can gain from FIRST Robotics programs and that experience is a key component to getting them engaged and excited about STEM. The company became a strategic partner of FIRST in 2014, and to date, more than 200 teams have been started in Dow communities, and most are mentored by Dow employees.
