MAKE is at the FIRST Robotics expo at the Javits Center in NYC for the NY/NJ regionals. Check out my Flickr set for some of the robot action!

The New York City / New Jersey FIRST  is a regional office of FIRST, the 501c3 nonprofit organization created to inspire youth to pursue further studies and careers in science and technology and to help students acquire the knowledge and skills needed to compete in the technologically-driven global economy.

Participation in FIRST has a positive impact on the lives of students, increasing college attendance, majors in science and engineering, participation in internships and co-ops, and involvement in community service.

We’ll be here all weekend, stop by our table and say hi and learn about our Make: Money fundraising program for robotics groups!
