Dean's Mom and's Mom to speak at Championship

Dean and’s mothers will participate, along with their sons, in a session held in the Ferrara Theater Friday morning at 10:30 AM.

The “Mothers of Invention” discussion will be hosted by John Hockenberry and is open to all members of the FIRST Community.

Will this be available on webcast or archive?

This quote makes some sense now.

I’d certainly be interested to read more about it or clips of the discussion at least. I’m not really sure what to expect from it, but it has certainly got my interest.

Wind beneath sons’ wings
creates lift.The children thrive.
Mothers celebrate.


You can learn a lot about someone, by meeting their Mom. It’s a great indicator of character.

I meet Andy Bakers Mom at kickoff last year. It was the highlight of my day.

Does anyone know if this was recorded? If so where can we view it?

I was there - it was a fantastic panel. Well worth watching if it becomes available. It was on camera for the monitors and screens, so I’m sure there’s got to be some sort of archive. I’ll ask around. :slight_smile:

Would have loved to have seen it but it was scheduled at the same time as the NEMO meeting so look forward to the recording.

Me, too!
So much goes on at Championships that you miss because you’re either with a team that is competing at that moment, or you are volunteering and can’t break away, or you’re busy giving a conference presentation, or in another meeting, or… well, it really makes me want to get cloned. :ahh:

Taking my mom to Kickoff last year was one of the highlights of my life. I was very proud to introduce her to John and countless other amazing people.


Here’s a few audio clips from the interview - this is all I can currently find. The automatic transcript is totally wrong, but the audio’s pretty nice. Good stories from all the moms. :slight_smile:
