Amazon partners with “FIRST” to provide robotics education
Amazon, a US-based e-commerce company, is partnering with “FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology)”, a US-based STEM NPO (not for profit organization). This partnership aims to provide robotics education. An underrepresented population of the US will be the target audience for this partnership. The robotics education will begin in 100 schools in 21 states. Currently, “FIRST” has more than 100,000 robots positioned across its warehouses. “Amazon is helping “FIRST” in our goal to make robotics teams and programs available in every school,” said, “FIRST” founder Dean Kamen. Amazon will have hands-on education technology, computer science and engineering that would assist Amazon to provide innovation in education.
