Putting young people first

Kamen founded FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a nonprofit that connects kids with mentors and programs to “explore real-world scientific challenges” and:

  • Grow their problem-solving skills
  • Nurture cooperation and self-esteem
  • Get them excited about science and innovation
