Notes from Nicky: a thought for Friday afternoon

So, you wonder sometimes, what good -precisely- is participation in the SVTC's activities? People often ask me to help them quantify their Return On Investment (ROI) which of course is somewhat intangible. Well, for starters, active and IN-PERSON participation is what allows people to connect -- whether that's for business development or "merely" for assistance or education. (As you know, we connect the whole wide range of "technology" people -- from the person who is a user of technology, e.g. me, to the technology creator.)

Let me expand on this connection thought by highlighting some of Amy Sabarre's activities. Amy is the Harrisonburg City Public Schools' PK-5 Science Coordinator / PK-12 Integrative STEM Coordinator. She, as always, attended our last Tech Nite gala this past May, and there set out to meet as many people as she could. She collected their info and then contacted them afterwards. As you might have guessed, one of the many things she does is helping HCPS middle-schoolers form FIRST Lego League (FLL) teams and she often needs mentors, volunteers and tools. Hence, she connected and met with a variety of greater Harrisonburg businesses (e.g. SVTC members and active participants SUNRNR, Chiedo Labs, Ivy Tools, and EasternBioPlastics) and found people happy to help and contribute in many big and small ways. At the end of this connection, made via the SVTC, are teams and mentors happily connected and feeling that their time was / is well spent. And by the way, the future Valley workforce is being shaped right there!

 

The gist of the story? Come and talk to others, see what they do and connect. The next excellent connecting opportunity is our SVTC Fall Tech Mixer - registration is open.

BTW: Amy is looking for a mentor/coach the Refugee Resettlement organization is attempting to put together (location: will meet at Thomas Harrison Middle School) - a group of 5 0 7 middle schoolers. IN case you're interested in mentoring / volunteering (no prior experience is required!), please contact Amy Sabarre : asabarre@harrisonburg.k12.va.us

FIRST Lego League (FLL) announces this year's Challenge "World Class"
Funds available to offset cost of starting a FLL team

 
click for website

 

FIRST Lego League announced its challenge for the 2014 season this week.  "What is the future of learning? 

In the 2014 FLL WORLD CLASS Challenge, over 265,000 children from 80 countries will redesign how we gather knowledge and skills in the 21st century. Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn. Get ready for a whole new class - FLL WORLD CLASS!"  Teams are asked to research ways of learning and teaching to explore a problem and to find and present on a researched solution.  "Think about the people who help you learn. Think about the technology that you use to learn and the people who create it."

    

"Past challenges have been based on topics such as nano-technology, climate, quality of life for the handicapped population, and transportation. By designing our challenges around such topics, participants are exposed to potential career paths within a chosen challenge topic, in addition to solidifying the STEM principles that naturally come from participating in a robotics program." 

 

"The only difference between this sport and all the others is every kid on our teams can go pro. There's a job out there for every one of these kids." Dean Kamen, entrepreneur, inventor of the Segway and founder of FLL. 

 

What is FLL?  

"The best way to summarize FIRST LEGO League is to say that it is a robotics program for 9 to 16 year olds, which is designed to get children excited about science and technology -- and teach them valuable employment and life skills. FLL can be used in a classroom setting but is not solely designed for this purpose. Teams, composed of up to ten children with at least one adult coach, can also be associated with a pre-existing club or organization, homeschooled, or just be a group of friends who wish to do something awesome.  Try the  FIRST youtube channel  for more inspiration. The FLL website is a great resource for parents and prospective coaches to learn how FLL works and how to start a team. The VA-DCFLL website is also a great resource and includes a link to apply for a SVTC Sponsorship to offset the cost of starting a new team in the Shenandoah Valley.

     

The Shenandoah Valley Technology Council is a supporter of FIRST Lego League's mission to engage kids in science and technology.  Seeing that the U.S. future workforce will need to be strong in STEM fields, all of which can be found in the FLL activities, the SVTC supports FLL teams and tournaments in our region.

$250,000 + R&D Grant Funding Opportunity

Research & Development Grant Program Information Session (Virginia Tobacco Commission)

 

 "The Tobacco Commission's R&D fund is a great opportunity that many companies fail to explore." Robert Stolle, Sr. VP Operation, Center for Innovative Technology. 

 

Grants from Virginia's Tobacco Commission, ranging from $250,000 to $2 Million, are available for the final stage of research or prototyping of new products or services that are expected to lead to commercialization.  Eligible industry/research sectors include; energy, biomedical and healthcare, information technology services, materials and chemicals, clean energy and environment.  The next R&D grant application deadline is October 16th.  Although funding and the resulting commercialization must be within Virginia's Tobacco Footprint Region to qualify, that does not mean that companies must be headquartered there.  So opportunities can apply to companies all across Virginia.

 

Commission representatives are hosting an information workshop is intended to promote R&D grant opportunities and explain how to apply.   

 

Who should attend: Company principals, business leadership, entrepreneurs, prospective applicants and project team members.
