It’s pretty awesome seeing STEM represented on mainstream television. Happy to see our reach widening.


#4

Im just hoping that FIRST is represented as is and does not get butchered by them.


#5

To my knowledge, there are a lot of FIRSTers involved in this project with the Fosters. I have faith that it will execute well.

Wow. Just wow. Never did I think the mentor built robot debate would make it on to a tv show.


#13

Were FIRST teams involved at all in the writing and storyline? The storyline pushed in this teaser is pretty embarrassing for FIRST.


#14

What makes it so embarrassing, Adam?


#15

The episode is based on mentor built robots…


#16

Disparaging teams for having engineering mentors… which is one of the core concepts of the program.


#17

So I take it that you’ve seen this episode in it’s entirety and have identified this plot point as “The storyline”?


#18

>mentor built robots
>southern california
>NASA

I really hope this is a coincidence


#19

Were FIRST teams involved at all in the writing and storyline? The storyline pushed in this teaser is pretty embarrassing for FIRST.

I’m commenting on the storyline from the trailer/teaser… All I can go on. And that trailer pretty clearly criticizes teams for engineering mentors.


#20

There is also an episode where a student takes drugs because she’s tired from build…not totally the right message in my opinion…

I’m honestly surprised FIRST signed off on this.
