FIRST, which stands for ‘For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology’, is a US-based non-profit organisation that inspires young people to be leaders in science and technology.

The breakout session showcased the team’s journey to the FIRST Global Challenge in Mexico City this past August.
