FIRST Robotics Canada Mission
Our mission is to inspire young people to pursue further studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Our vision is of a world which celebrates success in STEM and in which young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes. We pursue our mission primarily through running robotics competitions for school-age students at the elementary, junior high school and senior high school level.
Canada has emerged as a world leader in many science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. STEM-related careers and jobs have become more prevalent as more businesses and organizations look to innovate, modernize and grow. We need a workforce that can continue to meet the challenges that lie ahead in STEM-related fields, which will only increase in demand. At FIRST Robotics Canada, we know that investing in programs like ours that encourage young people to develop related skills is one of the most important investments our society can make.
