To prepare the world’s innovators and makers of the future, we focus on improving and increasing STEM education programs, particularly among women and underrepresented groups.
Through the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology) program, we are inspiring young minds globally with a focus on communities with limited access to technology opportunities. Rockwell Automation supported 221 teams across all FIRST programs and the team grant program continued to grow with a 10% increase over the prior season. Additionally, our strategic partnership has significant leadership support, including our Chairman & CEO Blake Moret who serves on the FIRST board of directors. Since 2006, we’ve committed more than $27 million with cash and in-kind product support.
