The team at Inertia is thrilled to announce that we’ll be supporting FIRST Canada with a three year sponsorship commitment.
FIRST Canada’s mission is to inspire young people to pursue studies and careers in the field of science, technology and engineering. They fulfill their mission by running robotics and lego competitions for school-age students at the elementary, junior high school and senior high school level. You can learn more about the organization here.
“I had the opportunity to volunteer as a judge at a recent event where younger students faced real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks. It was really inspiring to see the excitement, pride and creativity the kids had about their projects and the competition. I was blown away at the level of organization and professionalism at the event itself. I think the FIRST organization and volunteers inspire me as much as the kids!” – Ray Minato, Founder, Inertia
One of the reasons Inertia is so excited to support FIRST Canada is that we share many of the same core values with the organization. These include equity, diversity and inclusion, knowledge and skill transfer and gracious professionalism.
Inertia wouldn’t be where it is today without our brilliant team of engineers and designers. It’s another reason why we want to do what we can to help young people explore the potential of careers in these fields.
