Dream FIRST Online Conference 1/30

Hi Teams,

I know this is a busy time but Team 178 from Farmington, CT wants an hour of time from one person on as many other teams as possible. We have developed an award winning science literacy initiative called Dream FIRST which is designed to capture the interest and excitement of young children (ages 5 -10). Dream FIRST centers around a series of children's books and science activities which our team has created. Through Dream FIRST, children are introduced to the ideals of FIRST in a developmentally appropriate medium. Our team has run Dream FIRST events of varying size and scale at venues ranging from local libraries to an FRC regional to Girl Scout camps to inner city elementary schools. The events typically include: reading, science experiments, Lego activities, face painting, driving VEX robots, and more. The response to these events has been overwhelmingly positive. Our team's goal for this year and beyond is to inspire and assist other FRC (and FLL) teams to run Dream FIRST events of their own. Dream FIRST has been officially endorsed by FIRST. Through Dream FIRST events, our team has brought FIRST to over 1500 children. With your help, we can all reach many many more.

Our web conference will explain the benefits to your team that come from running a Dream FIRST event, how we can help, and what the end results of Dream FIRST can be (i.e. sparking new JFLL and FLL teams). Please have someone from your team join us on Wednesday January 30th, from 7 - 8 PM Eastern Standard Time. Visit http://www.dreamfirst.org to register!!!

Thanks and good luck with your build season!
