“Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation.”
Dean Kamen

FIRST

“If you are able to succeed from K-5, then you can apply the same techniques in middle school, then high school. You end up with a huge pool of young people in STEM that you can direct to a baccalaureate education and beyond. You might even inspire the next group of scientists who may one day change the world.”
Okenwa Okoli

Chair, Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, FAMU
