Hello Rookies, I’d like to take a moment to tell you about the upcoming NEMO meeting that will taking place at the Championship Event in St. Louis. Jenny Beatty is one of the founders of this organization and she has worked with her co-founder, Kathie Kentfield, to create a wonderful opportunity for all of the teams at the event. Below is the post that Jenny has made in Chief Delphi regarding the meeting. Please pass this information on to your team’s adult leaders. See you soon, Jane Young Mentor, FRC 418 LASA Robotics Austin, Texas “We are delighted to be hosting the 8th NEMO annual meeting at the Championship - Friday April 27 from 10am-noon in Room 280 on the second floor of the America’s Center. NEMO (non-engineering mentor organization) now has over 650 registered members. NEMO is a community of practice, a support group and an information exchange for all mentors (and parents) in FIRST. www.firstnemo.org As always, the meeting will be open to all adults (post HS age), and all are welcome to come and go as their schedules dictate. We understand everyone will be very busy. We will be starting the meeting this year with a panel of mentors who have facilitated NEMO meetings and workshops around the country. The goal is talk about what they have been doing, and spread some lessons learned and best practices. We will also have an open discussion for any issues at hand and direct the way to possible resources. See you there! Jenny Beatty”
