FIRST® LEGO® League Teams participated in IAEM-USA Conference & EMEX
An unusual site was seen in the EMEX Exhibit Hall and during the FEMA Think Tank session held at the IAEM-USA Conference. There were "kids" in the room! As a proud sponsor of
FIRST® LEGO® League
2013 Nature’s Fury Challenge
, IAEM-USA invited teams from local schools to participate. Five teams participated in EMEX from a prime space located near the stage. Students kept EMs on their toes as they asked structured and detailed questions. Students also participated in the FEMA Think Tank national conference and on the national conference call with FEMA Deputy Administrator Rich Serino. One of the highlights was when Serino asked how many in the audience knew that robots were used in the last 35 natural disasters and only the FLL kids raised their hands. IAEM-USA encourages members to work in their regions to support student teams as mentors as the season progresses.
