Well I shouldn’t be surprised but the response to my offer has been overwhelming. So rather than me just picking someone here’s how I would like to proceed:
I have more than enough LEGOs for one team, probably enough for 3 or 4, but I don’t have the time to sort through them and divvy them up. I would like someone who is a first time coach to volunteer their team to adopt all of these LEGOs on the condition that they “share the wealth”. Your team will have to identify what parts they reasonable need and then make the balance available to other teams by packaging them and contacting the teams directly. I will be happy to provide a list of interested parties who responded to my first email. One other condition: you must come to Ashburn to pick these up! (empty out your trunk first!)
This will be a great exercise for your team in Gracious Professionalism!
With that as my revised offer, if you’re willing to take this on please contact me off list.
Thanks and good luck to all of your teams!
I have a rather large collection of LEGOs that I would be happy to donate to a team that’s looking to build up a collection of parts for their robotic endeavors. I was an FLL coach for several years when my son was younger and began accumulating a large collection of parts back then. The collection has grown over the years and It now fills 4 ZAG cases, plus multiple small parts bins along with a number of small containers of common blocks and plates. I also have some Mindstorms gear though it’s mostly RCX/NXT vintage, but may be usable. Everything is sorted by part type. There is a wide variety of parts including many Technic pieces and special items. Everything is genuine LEGO and therefore eligible for use on your robot.
The catch is I’m looking for someone to take the whole batch. If there’s more than you need you might be able to sell parts on eBay to raise team funds. I need to free up the room in our basement and it’s time to move on!
I’m in Northern VA (Ashburn). Feel free to contact me off list if interested
