FIRST Mentors in IEEE Magazine

Here is a link to an article from IEEE magazine, featuring several FIRST mentors! (June issue of IEEE-USA Today’s Engineer)

Well written!

I really like the way they have linked the profiles of the IEEE Member / Mentors - essentially extending the article to twice the size!

Great article! I was pleasantly susprised to see that one of our mentors was interviewed! Thanks for posting this!

I like this paragraph the best ,

In addition, IEEE-USA’s involvement in next year’s FIRST Robotics Competition should be clearer, according to IEEE-USA Precollege Education Committee chair Dusty Fisher. At their meeting on 2 May 2009, the committee passed a motion to move ahead with a clearly defined relationship to support both IEEE members and FIRST in several new ways.

Does anyone know of teams partnering with or sponsored by their local IEEE chapters ?
