1.The Java™ platform is an interesting vehicle for teaching kids about programming.
2. FIRST is an organization whose mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills; inspire innovation; and foster well-rounded life abilities such as self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
3. Robots are cool; robotic competitions are even cooler.
What happens when you mix these three things? You come up with a winning combination that lets kids and "adults" have a lot of fun.
