there are many ways to continue your first experience in collge.
*mentor a team - probably the most rewarding for you, but remember you arn;t there to build the robot anymore you are there to inspire
*work at a regional - this wont fill your 6 weeks but it will let you continue your connection with FIRST
*get on the regional planning committee- much more work and it will carry you through the year
another way to fill the void is to get involved in another project...for example i am a leader on my schools DARPA grand challenge team and i have to devote many hours to that year round.....there are many other project oriented things at school, FIRST is not the end...it is the beginning
