The AISIN Field was the hot spot for robot battle at the recent FIRST Robotics District Qualifying Competition in Livonia, Michigan. AISIN was pleased to return as presenting sponsor of this exciting event as the robots rolled away their post-COVID rust and got to back to competition!

We welcomed Lt. Governor of Michigan (and former FIRST Robotics competitor) Garlin Gilchrist to serve as keynote speaker at the opening ceremonies of the event, where he inspired today’s youth to be relentless in their pursuit of the dreams of tomorrow. He also spent time engaging with the students and mentors and learning about the robots.

AISIN is honored to be a long-time supporter of FIRST Robotics, the world’s leading youth-serving nonprofit advancing STEM education. FIRST Robotics inspires 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.
