Haydon Kerk Recognized at the 2018 FIRST Supplier Summit

Milford, NH — Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, Inc. attended the 2018 FIRST Supplier Summit in July, and was proud to receive recognition as a 20-year supplier.  The summit was hosted by Dean Kamen, the founder of the FIRST organization.  It was an opportunity to network, meet some of the FIRST robotic teams/team representatives and observe them demonstrate this past year’s challenge and their team’s solution.  As a supporter, we had the opportunity to drive the robots, and meet with the students who created them, discuss their challenges, and successes in the FIRST robotics season.  Afterwards, a dinner with keynote speakers from the leadership of the FIRST organization, board members, organizers and an address by a Dean’s student.  Studies show favorable metrics of FIRST students pursuing higher education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields.
