As a company of scientists, technologists, and engineers (among others professions), we are always looking for ways to support students in similar fields. One such activity has been partnering with FIRST, an incredible non-profit helping to inspire the interest in STEM training. 

Says founder Dean Kamon, the charity's goal is "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."

As you can see in these photos, this event was a whir of teamwork and competition.
