PICATINNY ARSENAL, N.J. – It is often said that the difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys.
An organization called “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology” (FIRST) allows them to play together.
In fact it encourages not only men and boys–but also girls and women –to join in the same activities.
FIRST exists to encourage students from many nations to experience technology and engineering through competitive robotics challenges at several levels.
Personnel at Picatinny Arsenal are involved in advancing the learning and cooperation that the program fosters, and in the process promoting education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
