Community Involvement

Part of being on FIRST Team 1305 involves promoting STEM and community service. Our community efforts have resulted in all 3 levels of government being responsive to FIRST. “1305 has demonstrated capacity for building meaningful partnerships in education, business, and industry. ”- Mayor Al McDonald

Inspired by the corporate citizenship of our sponsors, partners and champions, we expand growth and impact by averaging over 1 day a week of community involvement year round.
