Subject: Re: [VADCFLL-L] Coaches' Clinics at George Mason University Fairfax, 
Friday October 1, 6-8 PM - Reminder


Greetings,
 
Just a quick reminder that the GMU workshop and clinics (for coaches and team 
members) is tonight 6-8PM at the Johnson Center Room E&F on the 3rd Floor.
 
In addition to the availability of our FLL organizer, judge, and referee 
experts, we are excited to confirmed our three subject expert speakers from NIH 
and GMU for tonight:
Dr. Joseph J. Pancrazio, Bioengineering Program Director, GMU - 
Dr. Grace C.Y. Peng, Program Director, Discovery Science & Technology Div. at 
the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, NIH – 

Dr. John W. Haller, Program Director, Applied Science & Technology Div. at the 
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, NIH – 

It will be a great opportunity for the team (kids) to interview experts and ask 
questions for their research project on Biomedical Engineering.  We will also 
have video and demonstration of past competitions from several teams in the 
northern Virginia area as well.
 
In addition, we will have a Lego Swap for the kids.  There will be a box full of 
Lego pieces where the kids can swap their pieces for other pieces – “One go in – 
one come out!”
 
With the rush hour, traffics will be very bad around Fairfax and GMU at 6PM so 
give yourself plenty of time to park and find the Johnson Center!  An updated 
workshop agenda is below.
 
Cheers!

Reminder - Coaches Workshop and Team Clinics - Meet the experts in 
Bioengineering - Friday 6-8 PM, George Mason University, Johnson Center, Fairfax
 
Greetings,
 
Glad to see so many communications going around for the Robot Game and rules on 
the list server, but rarely see such volume of questions on the Research Project 
which has equal score weight-age and lots of creative things to do.  Remember 
Project solution also leads to the Teamwork development; strategy; focus; roles; 
responsibilities and dynamics. 
 
Parents and Teachers are great source to find experts in the biomedical 
engineering, but its is not always easy.  How about attending GMU Coaches 
Workshop and team Clinics where you will meet academics and researchers from 

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging & Bioengineering.
 
Besides our own volunteers and experienced coaches, we have invited 
bioengineering experts from NIH and GMU as well as top two teams from the 2009 
VA/DC FLL State Championship.

Expect this experts to present research geared towards the ages 9-14 and share 
ongoing biomedical engineering projects. We have requested them to get kids 
excited about this field and address team questions. We will have a sign-up 
sheets for the teams to meet with this experts in the Clinic Room.  Further 
details were shared in the following e-mail for location and evening agenda.
