ABC to televise youth robotics and technology special

InternAdmin Contributor

On Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, ABC is going to showcase the power of science, technology, and robotics in a new special entitled “i.am.FIRST: Science is Rock and Roll.” This special is geared primarily around the first-ever FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championship, which is a competition held for K-12 students in order to showcase their skills in developing robotics and technology. It’s a look not only at how science is progressing in the modern world, but also the continued importance of math and science education (an initiative that is often forgotten by many in the midst of everything else going on in the country).
