What do you do?
Let's say you're a FIRST coach - what do you tell people who ask?
'I coach a FIRST team' or
'I show kids science and technology are fun'
'My team works on robots' or
'My team develops fairly complex machines'
'The students learn about STEM' or
'The students learn they can actually DO the things technologists do'
'These kids learn about technology' or
'These kids learn that they can use technology to change the future'
Each statement is absolutely true - it's just how you frame it. If you're a coach you're making a huge difference. You see some of the results now - but more will come in the future.
