FIRST & President Obama's Educate to Innovate...


Reee-Bot the Roving Robot Reporter here with exciting news…

On November 23, 2009, President Obama announced the “Educate to Innovate” initiative, a campaign to inspire students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. There at the announcement was Dean Kamen of FIRST (For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology) along with the FRC team from Oakton HS from Vienna, Virginia; who gave a demonstration of their robot (seen towards the end of the video).

"As president, I believe that robotics can imspire young people to pursue science and engineering."

Thank you Mr. President Obama for supporting FIRST...
