Ford support for FIRST® robotics programs
Ford recognizes that robotics programs are a great way for children as early as kindergarten to experience science, technology, engineering and math in action. Students want to know how things work and they want to find new solutions to existing problems. Ford is working with FIRST® to support their mission to bring this opportunity to K-12 students. Every year, young innovators from kindergarten to high school are pushing the limits and competing against other talented students. Look into the programs for each grade level and imagine what YOUR kids can do!
