I was not able to watch most of the kickoff feed.

Where can I find a written description of Dean's 2010 Homework Assignment?

This may not be precisely what you are looking for, but it is a relevant article and has a short but accurate description of Dean's homework for the year. It's just about the only thing that a quick Google search turned up.


... In 2010, 1809 teams and over 200,000 students are participating with FIRST teams around the world. Kamen assigned homework to all of us this year: Itís time to make FIRST a spectator sport! He wants to infect the masses with a spirit of play, invention and innovation. A Hollywood Director and the Director of Technical Support from Cirque du Soleil were added to the Game Design Committee in an effort to make the game as fun to watch as it is to play. ...

I could not find anything on the FIRST website or forums yet, either. The transcript for kickoff is not posted to NASA's website yet.

Hope that article helps!

Dean's homework is yet to be assigned. They still have details to iron out.

He used as an analogy the annual Girl Scout cookie sale as a tool for building brand image and awareness.

We will not be selling cookies but will be engaging in a periodic large scale brand image and awareness campaign.

Stay tuned for more information.
