We were given the opportunity to attend the FIRST Robotics Gala in November 2016.
FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology”. We look towards science, technology, engineering, arts, math, history and culture and to inspire us and lead others to create a better future for our local and global community.
Some quotes that inspire us:

Technology is a word that describes something that doesn’t work yet. – Douglas Adams
Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless. – Thomas Edison
In the twenty-first century, the robot will take the place which slave labor occupied in ancient civilization. – Albert Einstein
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. – Elbert Hubbard
You have teenagers thinking they’re going to make millions as NBA stars when that’s not realistic for even 1 percent of them. Becoming a scientist or engineer is. – Dean Kamen
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers. –Sydney Harris
The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art. – John Lasseter
Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. – Arthur Schlesinger
