The Future Starts Here

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a high school robotics program designed to motivate students to pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. Over the years, NAI has helped launch several FIRST Robotics programs in school districts across Long Island. NAI continues to be actively involved in the FIRST program by sponsoring six local high school robotics programs and the Long Island Regional competition. In addition, NAI employees mentor students at these schools and serve as judges during competitions.
