At Intelligent Decisions, our corporate citizenship focus areas include family and education. FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, is a perfect combination of the two. FIRST was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Designing accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills is the cornerstone of the program.
The children of our employees made up our 2011 inaugural team and was mentored by one our engineers. After just three weeks building and planning, the ID FIRST Robotics Team won the Lego League Division 1 competition for the core value challenge – beating out quite a few other teams with years of experience.
