Colleges Want for FIRST Students
NUTS & VOLTS
Most high school students think that participating in
the annual FIRST robotics competition is merely a
good way to meet friends, build cool robots, learn some
new skills — and maybe even win a regional competition.
However, due to the high technical capabilities of emergent
FIRST graduates over the past five years, adding this item
to your college application could really boost your chances
of rising above the competition. Note that, in 2003, 36
universities offered nearly $3.8 million in scholarships to
the 25,000 high school participants of FIRST. (In addition,
over 700 corporations provided sponsorship and career
opportunities.) So, if you're a student and not on a FIRST
robotics team at your school, think twice about getting that
job flipping burgers — think about what applying your mind
might do for your future education. If you're an engineer
with a dozen hours to spare, consider contacting the
sponsor at your local high school to volunteer as a mentor.
Even a small amount of knowledge can impart a huge
amount of inspiration to a young engineer — with
the potential to change his/her life. More information is
