Each year,
FIRST
Founder
Dean Kamen presents the Founder’s Award
for exceptional service in advancing the ideals
and mission of
FIRST.
Presenting the 2012 Founder’s Award to Google
Inc. at the
FIRST
Championship, Kamen recognized
the company for helping
FIRST
reach its strategic
objectives to grow. Google sponsors 20
FIRST
Robotics Competition (FRC) teams and funds eight
FRC Regional events from Boston to Silicon Valley,
along with
FIRST
Tech Challenge and
FIRST
LEGO
League events across California.
The
FIRST
Green e-watt saver LED bulb fundraising
program — made possible by a generous grant from
Google — helps teams across all
FIRST
programs
raise funds while encouraging their communities to
protect the environment.
The award was accepted by Vice President of New
Business Development, Megan Smith. “One of the
most exciting things we see at Google is that all of
this technology is bringing the talent of the world
together,” said Smith, who encouraged participants
to share their incredible experience with other kids in
their schools so they, too, will join a
FIRST
team.
