Hello everyone! A project my friend is working on needs more experts!
Part of the FLL competition is working on a project related to the topic that is changed annually. Students are asked to talk to at least two different experts, but many teams struggle to find even one expert to aid their team often just having to rely on who their parents and teachers know or just emailing people off the internet and hoping they answer. The relationships that students build with these experts are very important, so to help more teams get this experience, we are hoping to create a program to connect FLL teams with experts that have already expressed interest in helping students with these projects.
We are looking for a variety of experts (including non-STEM fields like politics, psychology, and health as projects can vary widely). Experts would be asked to correspond with a team through a series of emails which could include but are not limited to questions, proposals for innovations, and updates on the teams. The number of emails that are exchanged will depend on what the team needs and the amount of time you are willing to give. We will provide a middle person to help facilitate these conversations. There is no guarantee a team will contact you as we will try to match students to experts in their area of interest.
