Passionate about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics)

FIRST® programs give participants age-appropriate access to research, design, construction and programming activities. The theme changes each year, and teams investigate, analyze problems related to the challenge topic to design innovative solutions for their solution.

Teamwork promotes the acquisition of social and communication skills and is intended to encourage experimentation with different roles within the challenges proposed each year.

Gracious Professionalism®

Term coined by Dr. Woodie Flowers, (1943 – 2019) EAB Chair Emeritus & Distinguished Advisor.

It is a way of dealing with challenges that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community.

Gracious professionals” learn and compete like madmen but treat each other with respect and kindness while avoiding treating anyone as a loser.


It is a way of working that produces innovation. It means showing kindness and unreserved respect in the face of competition and is based on the idea that teams can and should help and cooperate with each other even during a competition.

It involves learning from teammates and simultaneously teaching teammates. It is learning from Mentors. And it is managing and being managed. Coopertition® means competing to the best of one’s ability, but assisting and helping others whenever possible.
