The mission of The FIRST New Zealand Education Trust (FIRST® NZ) is to engage young people throughout New Zealand to become the innovators of tomorrow through building science, technology and engineering competencies that will nurture their life skills including collaboration, self-worth and communication.

We will achieve this through:
● mentoring-based programmes
● equality for all
● working towards understanding and solving real-life problems
● taking ownership of the future
