Hello FLL coaches, mentors & teams,
Opportunity to get involved with advocacy for STEM+C competition team
funding in underserved community schools.
Tomorrow, Saturday 12/3 from 9-noon, Blue CHeese is hosting a virtual
education session regarding a bill being introduced into the 2023 VA
General Assembly by Sen Stanley. The students wrote this bill and asked
Stanley to introduce it and he agreed. This is an extension of SB246 that
was passed in 2016 to provide startup funding grants for STEM+C competition
teams in schools with >40% F/R lunch. This new bill will broaden the scope
to elementary through high school as well as provide for startup funding
and continued funding grants and codify the fund to not expire. Speakers on
the call will include SASA (nonprofit behind NAC), Mark Smith from GMU,
422, 540 & 1086. Please attend if you can, share with other STEM supporting
people that would love to learn how they can make STEM competition teams
more accessible across public schools.
See attached flyer for more information.
December 3rd, 9 AM - 12 PM eastern
