I just learned about this organization from a friend on Twitter, @feeman. This is a terrific program to get kids involved with the area of academics that will shine later in their life! I have to share this with my kids and let them see there are fun things in life and see the difference of learning in a textbook versus life applications. The main thing I like with what I see so far with FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is how it reaches all grade levels. Fantastic!
Way to go Dean, true leadership.
