Booz Allen Hamilton signs deal with FIRST With less than a fifth of high school seniors interested in a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) career, our nation lacks the pipeline of future talent to address pressing challenges like cybersecurity. To help inspire young people to pursue careers in STEM fields, the international not-for-profit FIRST® has significantly expanded their relationship with Booz Allen Hamilton today, inducting the company as one of 18 FIRST Strategic Partners. With the help of these Strategic Partners and others, FIRST engages more than 400,000 youth (ages 6-18) and more than 100,000 adult volunteers annually, across more than 80 countries.
Bechtel sponsors FIRST FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a not-for-profit organization founded by inventor Dean Kamen to inspire young people’s interest and participation in science and technology, has officially recognized Bechtel as a FIRST Strategic Partner. The global engineering, construction, and project management company has provided multifaceted support to FIRST since 2008.
