To add to that, and I might even put it ahead of both of those items.the
kids care about having the judges "actively listen" to them in their
presentation and interviews. They love sharing their hard work and what they
have learned (even if they are nervous) because that accomplishment is what
they will long after remember. If no one seems to listen, they will remember
that, too. So please, I'm asking every coach and judge to listen to the team
members' stories, look them in the eye with kindness and ask them questions
so they know you are listening. That's how to really get them excited and
inspired to delve further into science and technology and to help them
develop their confidence. Team members can do the same for their fellow
competitors and they might be pleasantly surprised at what they learn.
Everyone can take on the responsibility and play a role in making the day of
competition a wonderful experience for all.
