Dear friends and family of FIRST Robotics British Columbia,
We, the Board of Directors, are excited and proud to announce new vision and mission statements for our organization. These statements will guide our growth in the years to come. They will continually remind us what we are ultimately striving for and how we will get there. Here they are:
All youth in British Columbia have the opportunity to enjoy science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
To inspire young people in British Columbia to pursue further studies and careers in the field of science, technology, engineering, and math through robotics competitions for school-age students.
As a regional delivery partner for FIRST, our mission statement should come as no surprise. We have seen first-hand how robotics programs by FIRST are inspiring and life-changing across the world. We choose to deliver these amazing programs so that young people in British Columbia can experience this too.
Our vision statement required more careful thought. We deliberately crafted it to focus on geographical growth across all of British Columbia. We are very serious about providing STEM opportunities to all youth in British Columbia.
We hope you are as excited as we are about our refreshed vision and mission. Please continue to support us as we reach further to inspire youth in British Columbia to pursue the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.
Board of Directors, FIRST Robotics British Columbia
