About our topic:
Our mission as ISA is to advance technical competence by connecting the automation community. One way that our local community can give back and help fulfil that mission is to learn more about, and get perhaps get involved with FIRST. ISA is a strategic alliance partner with FIRST on the national level. At a local level, we can have a significant impact in the community by creating more teams, engaging more mentors, and reaching out to more students as an alliance partner.
In this technical seminar, we will learn more about the FIRST program from representatives of the local FIRST Louisiana-Mississippi organization.
