24 Hours of STEM

Are you feeling the “robot withdrawal”? Looking for a way to have some STEM fun as we continue to social distance? Well, we’ve got your back! Starting at 5pm (US Pacific Time) on Friday June 26th we will be running at 24 hour virtual conference!

These “24 Hours of STEM” will be filled with presentations by FLL, FTC, and FRC teams and industry professionals. There is even Spike Prime training from a certified LEGO Education trainer. I’ve been blown away by the absolute all-star lineup of presentations we have lined up. Some highlights include:

  • Karthik from 1114 talking about strategy
  • Woodie Flowers Award winner John Larock from Hall of Fame team 365 talking about mentoring
  • 2020 Volunteer of the Year (and co-chief volunteer coordinators) Laurie Shimizu and Sarah Plemmons on volunteering
  • Michael Corsetto and Travis Schuh from team 1678 and 971 hosting a mock FRC Kick-off
  • 2019 World FTC Champions Gluten Free on the FTC Design Process
  • 2019 Hall of Fame Inductees 1868 and 1902 on branding and outreach
  • Woodie Flowers Award winner Andy Baker from AndyMark on mechanical processes
  • Jay Flores from Rockwell Automation on cool science tricks
  • Jason Feinstein from Google on how blacksmithing uses algorithmic thinking

And so, so much more! You can see the full schedule here.

Be sure to check it out! You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube (where we will be streaming). We hope to “see” you there.
