Attention Team Leads – we just wanted to say thank you! Thank you for your continuous commitment delivering the programme and inspiring the next generation of innovators within your local community. With your passion, perseverance and insight, together we’re driving real change, creating lasting memories and empowering young people to make informed choices about their future.
Now, without sounding too cheeky, we do just have one more favour to ask. We ask that you bottle up the epicness of this season and the event you just experienced. All the excitement and anticipation from our young innovators, their top-notch bots and that feeling of pride and belonging as teams watch their finished projects bossing it on the gamefield. Bottle it up, save it and unleash it when you return for another electric season.
Think of each team as this empty bottle in your hand. It stands strong on its own but without liquid, it can’t reach its full potential. As an educator, you’re pretty awesome at that. But there are streams of young people out there still thirsty for a drop of the FIRST Tech Challenge’s epicness. Now water has a knack to flow wherever the path directs it, so how will you set a stream for more young people to build More Than Robots?
Fresh talent will keep your team innovating. Maybe some of your team members will be graduating with a heavy heart – their journey doesn’t have to stop here! They can apply their skills and become mentors to your school or somewhere local.
Want an extra team? We’ve got you. Want to try incurricular delivery? We’ve got you. Want to try something completely new? Yup, we’ve got you.
Whatever your plans for next season, continue to be the personal, portable supply of liquid in the lives of bottles young people. Keep pouring in your knowledge, skills and talents so that every young person can reach new heights of excellence.
It’s been a ride.
