Welcome to the new VA-DC FLL site! My name’s Ros, this is my friend Kim, and we’ll be your tour guides this evening.
We’re honored and excited to be a part of this program. We started working with VA-DC FLL just a few months ago, and we’re honestly astounded at the amazing things that FLL teams are doing, and at how dedicated everyone involved is to helping the program succeed. We’re inspired. And so, we set out to build you a website with the same gusto as you build your robots! You’ll see a lot of changes and there are more to come. We want this site to serve YOU, so please let us know if you have any suggestions or ideas for making it better.
We looked at the team content from the perspective of someone who’s new to FLL and tried to make the steps for getting started as simple as possible.
More About YOU
The work you’re doing as VA-DC FLL teams is truly inspiring, and we think it’s the best way to show how amazing this program really is. We’ve started getting stories and testimonials from teams, and you’ll see the first few on the homepage. We will be putting out a call for more stories, testimonials, pictures, and videos soon!
In the meantime, we’ll be posting to this blog, but we want to publish your words too. You can find out how to submit your own blog posts here.
New User-Friendly Calendar
You’ll find a new calendar on the site here. You can submit your own events, sort by the type of event and the region, and you can even add our calendar to yours, whether you use google calendar, mac, or outlook.
We will keep the old VA-DC FLL website up and running for the time being while we finish the transition process. You can access that site here. Please let us know if there is any important information on that site that is missing on the new one!
Thanks to you all for the warm welcome you’ve shown us, and for all the hard (fun) work you put into this program!
Ros & Kim
