That's all I can say right now (look for a list of teams that won awards soon) about Saturday's FIRST LEGO League tournament at Riverbank State park in Manhattan. About a 1000 teachers, administrators, kids and parents as active participants and high school and college students joined by people from the business/corporate world as volunteers and contributers, plus around another 1000 there to support them and cheer them on. We were on the edge of capacity and victims of our own success. We are already talking about next year.
We had cooperation in getting the word out from the DOE publicity department at Tweed. Due to their efforts, look for a profile of a team in the NY Times this week.
Everybody is in a good frame of mind at FLL events and here I schmooze with the principal of Bronx Latin HS, which won 4th place overall.
Hōs successus alit; possunt, quia posse videntur.
('Success nourishes them; they can because they think they can.')
