Looking for teams who participated in the 2012 SENIOR SOLUTIONS!!!!! Last summer, Brandeis University and FIRST launched a new, multi-year impact study of student participants in the FIRST(r) LEGO(r) League, FIRST(r) Tech Challenge, and FIRST(r) Robotics Competition programs in the United States. The goal of the study is to assess the impact of FIRST on young people's interests in science and technology, their life and workplace skills, and their educational and career goals. An initial group of Teams joined the study last fall. Brandeis and FIRST are now seeking additional Teams and Team Leaders to participate in the study. Team Leaders who participate in the study will receive a stipend of $200 in the first year of their involvement in the study as a "thank you" for their time and effort. More importantly, Team Leaders will be helping FIRST achieve its long-time goal of conducting a major impact study of its programs. If you are interested in having your Team participate in the study, please go to https://brandeis.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_cGDCDZJaedNmgeg to learn more about what is expected of teams in the study, to answer a few qualifying questions and to provide your contact information. Teams to be included in the study will be selected from among those who respond, with the goal of providing a nationally representative sample of Teams in the study. We hope that you will take the time to consider this invitation and join this important effort. -- To UNSUBSCRIBE or CHANGE your settings, please visit https://listserv.jmu.edu/archives/vadcfll-l.html and select "Join or leave the list". -- VADCFLL administrative announcements are sent via VADCFLL-ANNOUNCEMENTS-L.
