As many of know, Dean Kamen, founder of FIRST, issues homework at the championship in Atlanta every year. Last year he asked everyone involved in FIRST (past or present) to join the FIRST Online Community. The goal is to get one million members in their database to measure and demonstrate how many people take part in FIRST activities.
We have not quite hit one million members of the community yet so Dean gave an unprecedented two week “extension” for his homework this year. To help get our homework in on time, I encourage you to visit http://firstcommunity.usfirst.org/, click on the REGISTER button at left, then complete the registration process. If you are not associated with a team, enter N/A in the required fields. This only takes 5 minutes to complete.
Please join the community and pass this email along to anyone who may have taken part in FIRST activities and has moved on to other challenges, especially your alumni.
If FIRST can show 1 million members, it will give us a louder voice in D.C. and other areas we need to spread our good mission.
Thanks and best regards,
