I've recently got the opportunity to meet with Oregon's Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici. She's very interested in putting the A in STEM, which is something we both share in common. We discussed the future of STEAM legislation and how FIRST plays a major role in that.
I volunteered as a roaming judge at the FLL state tournament. I was appointed as a robot judge, and was amazed at the complexity of the answers to my questions. Most of the robots I saw had fantastic contraptions. I hope to see those teams at FTC sometime soon!
