Our mission is to inspire young people to pursue further studies and careers in the fields of science, technology and engineering.
The mission of FIRST Robotics Ethiopia is:
- We inspire young people to pursue further studies and careers in the fields of science, technology and engineering
- We celebrate success in science, technology and engineering through robotics competitions for students at the elementary and secondary high school levels
- We develop communication, leadership and teamwork skills in our youth
- We engage the community through mentorship, sponsorship and volunteering at events
Our vision is of a nation which celebrates success in science, technology and engineering and in which young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s signature Core Values.
