FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization created by Dean Kamen to promote science and technology to students by creating exciting events where students create and operate robots in a unique challenge.
There are four divisions of FIRST divided up by age: Jr. FLL (Junior First Lego League), FLL (First Lego League), FTC (First Tech Challenge), and FRC (First Robotics Challenge).
Fusion Robotics is always looking for help in any form. Donations of any type including monetary, service, or item donations are always welcome.

Fusion Robotics was created in 2014 to support a FIRST FTC team. The goal was to provide an environment for the students that allowed them to experience all the aspects of creating a successful FTC team including creating a business plan, financial documents, fundraising, and outreach.
In order to fully provide fundraising efforts by the students, Fusion Robotics is a recognized public 501(c)3 charity. All donations to Fusion Robotics are tax deductible.
