ECIA FIRST Robotics Fundraising Campaign



There's still time to donate to FIRST! ECIA is actively fundraising for FIRST Robotics. The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.  

To prime the pump, TTI companies have generously committed a matching fund for the first $100,000 of members’ FIRST gifts to the ECIA Foundation.

Members, make a FIRST donation.

Are some industries now reporting supply overages? Where is the market in the natural cycle of chip supply-and-demand? Where will the impact of the U.S. CHIPS and Science Act be felt first?
