If you were to sum up FIRST in one word, what would it be and why?
If I had to sum up FIRST in one word it would be “joy”. Joy is defined by Oxford Languages as “a feeling of great pleasure and happiness”, which I personally feel is synonymous with FIRST, its programs, and communities. Everything that FIRST seems to have a hand in has this inexplicable electric energy coursing through it; whether that be competitions, late night build meetings with my team, or just having a really engaging conversation with a fellow FIRSTer. I feel that the phrase that FIRST is “more than just robots” couldn’t be more true.
