Master of ceremonies Steve Culivan, an employee of Penn State University and aerospace education specialist at NASA's Stennis Space Center, talks to a crowd of more than 300 who attended the Jan. 5 kickoff of the 2008 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition season. The students, coaches and mentors from three states who attended Saturday's kickoff also watched a live broadcast from FIRST’s Manchester, N.H., headquarters that revealed this year's competition challenge, and received parts kits from which they'll build robots to meet the challenge.
