Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered education that encourages and equips students for life and for eternity. While focusing on Christ, we prepare students for leadership roles within both the team and the community. We promote life skills such as teamwork, responsibility, academic advancement, business management, time management, personal accountability, and community involvement. igKnightion introduces students to positive role models and promotes the ideals of FIRST while allowing members to showcase their individual talents. Our efforts also include outreach to students from schools unaffiliated with FIRST who wish to participate on our team. In the community, we strive to increase awareness of science, engineering, and FIRST.
The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders." Dean Kamen, Founder
