FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) inspires young people to participate in science and technology to motivate career interest in STEM fields. Each year, FIRST gathers over half a million students around the world for thousands of robotics competitions that culminate at two global championship events. In FY21, FedEx helped FIRST to reach 370,000 students around the world. To make these competitions possible, robots and parts need to be transported, sometimes thousands of miles, to events around the world. For over 10 years, FedEx has donated shipping valued at more than $15 million to FIRST competitions around the world. And through FedEx Cares, our team members volunteer at championship events in support of the next generation of STEM leaders.
