FIRST - For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology


Bausch + Lomb is proud to support FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a non-profit organization whose mission is to motivate students to pursue opportunities in science and engineering.

Since 2002, Bausch + Lomb has sponsored the FIRST Robotics Competition, a worldwide engineering and design challenge matching teams of high school students and professional mentors.  We were instrumental in organizing the FIRST Finger Lakes Regional Robotics Competition here in our home city of Rochester, NY, and our engineers, scientists and technical staff members serve as coaches and mentors for local teams competing in the event.
