FIRST Team Robotics At The Marconi: Engineers, Robots, Kids, and More
What a great way to spend a Friday afternoon here at The Marconi, and such a surprise to us. We knew that we had some kids coming in to present, before an audience, their robots that they’d worked on collaboratively with their teammates.
So not being techies, we figured that it would be interesting, but certainly not something that we would be on the edge of our seats for cheering. How little did we know that it would be an afternoon of such inspiration.
Dick Marconi’s mantra of learn, earn and return came into play in a big way. To interview Max the dad regarding Max his son was so fascinating. Max the father told us that by education, family leadership, discipline and mental exercise, his son was able, at 15 years of age, to receive an internship with Qualcomm, out qualifying many college applicants. How great is that!?
Their website is www.usfirst.org so you can go on and get more detail about the genius of the program and these kids. They ARE America’s future and we as a foundation are proud to support them!
Happy weekend everybody.
