FIRST Reader

FIRST is, For Inspiration and Regonition of Science and Technology.  By creating our FIRST reading we were spreading their message.  The goal of "The Flying Toasters Spread the Word" is to share FIRST and STEAM with younger children and to expand their reach into the FIRST Lego-Leagues. In our book, there  is a forward from  Michigan Governor Synder supporting our project and STEAM carreers. Our goal is to get it in every elementary school and library and around the world. It has been translated into Japanese and Spanish. The Flying Toasters are truly spreading FIRST around the World.
