Greetings Coaches! Welcome to CARGO CONNECT!
If you are new to this email this is the place where you will find all of the Washington specific FIRST LEGO League Explore information. Coaches and team administrators in the FIRST system for the CARGO CONNECT season will be added weekly. Every email from me will be numbered, and that number lets you know which update it is. If you miss an update you can find it on our website.
I have 3 items for you today:

This season events will be run both remotely over Zoom and in person. Events will be in the morning from about 9am-12pm.
Teams participating in a remote event will log in and be assigned to their own breakout room. You can have students join from their own houses, they do not need to be in the same house. Additional participants such as parents or grandparents are not able to attend due to privacy reasons. The Zoom link is for team members only.
Reviewers will visit the teams in their breakout rooms to talk to the teams. When the reviewing is over, we will all be returning to the main room to play a short game and then will have the awards ceremony.
Teams will receive an awards certificate and medals for their team members. I will need a mailing address for the team to send these to.
All team members will need to be added to the teams roster online for the teams to be added to the Remote Event Hub.
Teams participating in person will sign up for an event and attend with their team. They will set up their model and poster, reviewers will come around and talk to the teams, then we will have a short awards ceremony. Teams will send one student to collect their awards certificate. We will not be doing a high five line. Coaches will collect the medals for their team after the awards ceremony.
I am still working on venues for the in person events, but know that there are less venues this season, and may not be one in your area.
If you have any other questions, please email me.
FIRST Washington Registration
Starting this season, all teams attending events, either remote or in person, need to register with FIRST Washington. This is in addition to your event registration form you fill out.
You will need to fill out the FIRST Washington registration, your event registration, and paid your $50 invoice for attending an event before you are confirmed in your event.
