To further the goal of a continuous program from Kindergarten to the senior year of high school, FIRST has unified the Core Values across all the programs. The New Core Values are below:
FIRST Core Values
We express the FIRST philosophies of Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition through our Core Values:
- Discovery: We explore new skills and ideas.
- Innovation: We use creativity and persistence to solve problems.
- Impact: We apply what we learn to improve our world.
- Inclusion: We respect each other and embrace our differences.
- Teamwork: We are stronger when we work together.
- Fun: We enjoy and celebrate what we do!
This will replace the old FLL Core Values shown below:
