    Talk about how we have a major shortage of STEM jobs (and say what STEM stands for)
    Say that FIRST really is all about raising STEM jobs in the US.
    Explain the numbering of teams (and how we're past 3000 now) and numbers get retired
    Talk how this truly is an international event. Israel has it's own regional. NASA helps simulcast the kickoff worldwide at the exact same time.
  • JOEL
    Ask if anyone knows Dean Kamen. Say he invented the Segway and is going robotic arms for prosthetic needs.
    Say that Dean Kamen founded first with help of an MIT professor (Woody Flowers)
    Say how we are student lead with mentors helping us (the mentors are people that do what we do as students at the professional level). They'll tell us what they know to have worked and not worked.
    All high school students and we do all of our work after school. There isn't a “Robotics class” that we go to. We also need to do our homework and all of our class work.
    We also are non-profit. It's a FIRST rule that the school cannot give us any momentary help. We can only use the school for a place to work.
    We truly operate like a small business. We have a product that needs to be made, fixed, broken, marketed, financed.
    Small sub-teams (build (which we break down into different bot parts depending on the competition), web, finance, business) (EXPLAIN WHAT EACH DOES)
    Given a very small time to build (6 weeks) and everyone is given a common KOP (to have a level playing field).
    Have a regional that we compete in (held in Williams & Mariucci & now Duluth also. Only state to have 3 different regionals)
    Another major thing we do doesn't even have to do with the robot, it's outreach to all the schools in the surrounding area
    Emphasize we went into debt 2 years ago to keep the price per student down
    Emphasize we mentor FLL teams (and host a mini-regional)
  • ALEX S.
    MAJORLY EMPHASIZE Mentoring FLL teams with our students
    MAJORLY EMPHASIZE Summer camps (paying job for students. Helps expose students to STEM. Feeder program for our team and FLL team.)
    Presented to Math & Science nights at an elementary school, a safety day at a different one
  • ALEX S.
    School isn't allowed to help at all
    $6,000 just to start a team + $3,000 more to put on the robot + $5,000 an additional regional + travel costs
    EMPHASIZE most students wouldn't be able to go to the places we go on their own.
    The team pays for everything for the students during travel
  • ALEX S.
    MAJORLY Emphasize Travel (many students wouldn’t be able to go to these places w/o our team paying)
    EMPHASIZE Outreach = Lego kits & FLL
  • ALEX A.
    Explain that their Logo goes on our robot, posters, EVERYTHING
    Can say that Thomson Reuters sponsored us and through the connections w/ them some of our students were able to get their summer internships
    Emphasize how giving us money = us to do more outreach and can continue to function (without sponsors none of this is possible)
