Hello Teams,

Thanks so much for your emails to 2012frcfeedback@usfirst.org regarding the Einstein report.  As Jon said in his note when the report was released, we may not be able to respond to every email directly, but we will be reviewing and considering each.  If you haven’t had your say yet, I encourage you to email it in.

Also, has your team logged into TIMS yet?  As of 7/23/12, 193 FRC teams have updated their team profiles for the 2013 FRC Season and 162 are ready for initial event registration.

And if you haven’t seen it, Dean Kamen & FIRST are featured in a three part TechScape column in the Huffington Post.  Part two is now online.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/billrobinson/techscape-dean-kamen-firs_b_1632659.html.  It’s worth checking out.

Finally, it’s with great sadness we note the passing of Sally Ride, first woman from the United States in space.  Sally was the real deal – a nationally ranked tennis player early in her life, a PhD in physics from Stanford in 1978, Space Shuttle trips in 1983 and 1984, and in 2001, founding her own company ‘Sally Ride Science’, creating products encouraging young people, especially girls, to pursue careers in science and technology.  She will be missed.
