Sonya, Thanks for asking about the Green GLOOOCS, they are getting very excited about the World Festival.? The Green GLOOOC himself is even going to make the trip to Atlanta (our giant paper mache mascot). In the next couple weeks we will be in touch with all the FLL teams in VA/DC.? We'll be brainstorming on how we will be representing all theVA/DC teams, but have been busy working on some legislation.? The team has been busy getting involved in trying to help get some legislation passed in the General Assembly.? They are going on Monday to talk before the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Conservation, and Natural Resources.? Their focus this year has been the reusable bag, and raising awareness on the importance of switching from paper and plastic bags to the reusable bag.? They have held many educational events on this topic and even spoke before the Governor's Commission on Climate Change.? They spoke on the importance of Virginia becoming a national leader in the use of the reusable bag. The team is also working on their robot so that it will hopefully be able to do all the missions in the 2 1/2 minutes. We'll be in touch soon with everyone!!
