ECIA & and the ECIA Foundation
Our member companies manufacture and sell electronic components. We work with FIRST® in a number of ways:
- encourage our members to become mentors and sponsors of local teams
- donate almost 2 million components to the Kit of Parts each year - which helps FIRST® keep costs down
- invite FIRST® teams to our events which enables them to meet and make valuable corporate connections in their area
We asked teams to give us ideas for some cool tools and other items to 3-D print.

Send Us Your Story or Photo
Tell us about using the Team Tools and, while supplies last, we'll send your team a copy of the "Getting Started with Arduino" book by founder Massimo Banzi. Banzi recently spoke at the ECIA conference and we are pleased to be able to offer FIRST® teams this reference. Send communication to Debbie Conyers: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Branded tools are designed by FIRST® alum Tim Balz, a student at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and the founder of a 501C-3 charity that has given more than 100 individuals the freedoms of mobility. During high school he served as the captain of his FRC® team 3 years beginning with the team’s rookie season.
