Hi Angie...

Our FLL team registered for the 2018 Science Expo, but I didn't receive a confirmation and just wanted to check on it. I'm just trying to plan our weekends and make sure I'm not making double plans. :)

Thanks so much!

FIRST will have a large exhibit booth at the upcoming 2018 USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, DC.  This is the largest STEM festival in the US.  Organizers are anticipating 350,000+ visitors over this  3-day Expo.  Participating in this event will be a great outreach opportunity for any FIRST team.  We're planning on "MAKING IT LOUD" by having all 4 FIRST programs represented at the FIRST Exhibit.  

We are looking for FIRST teams (FLL Jr, FLL, FTC and FRC) to join the FIRST Exhibit at this event.   
LINK TO SIGN-UP as a FIRST Exhibitor:  https://goo.gl/forms/9K4CPvRA5WLMRqSd2
NOTE:  Teams are encouraged to sign up for multiple shifts and multiple days.  At least 2 students are required at your exhibit.  For FLL Jr and FLL teams, at least 1 adult chaperone is required to there during the team's exhibit period.  We advise teams put their crew in shift schedules so that your team members can also enjoy the other exhibits at the festival.  Students can earn service hours for volunteering at this event.  


LOCATION:
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
801 Mt Vernon Pl, NWWashington, DC 20001
 
EVENT DATES:
Friday April 6 -- 9:00 am to 3:00 pm -- Sneak Peek Friday -- geared for Homeschoolers and School Field Trip Groups

More information about load-in, set-up and load-out will be provided to teams who volunteer for this event.

We hope that your FIRST teams will consider this STEM outreach opportunity.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

thanks,
angie
