For those interested…
We will have a few of the Bay Area’s top FIRST students on TechTV today - Monday, March 3 - to talk about FIRST. They say it is also shown on the web. The link is:
I think the actual show is called “Call for Help” (don’t ask me, I don’t know what it’s typically about) anyway…
They are in the process of doing 5 segments on Dean Kamen and FIRST - this is segment 3. It airs live (only a little scary) at 12 PST for any who want to watch it, and I think it airs again Tuesday morning at 6am PST. I’d also put the EST, but FIRST people are pretty bright - I figure everyone can figure it out.
There is also a link on the site to a pretty good 2 minute news story about FIRST filmed at last years Silicon Valley Regional - a number of great Bay Area teams are shown in the video.
Good luck to everyone competing in week 1 - have a great time!
