This is an amazing, real world experience for kids of all ages. When I watched my daughters work with thier team mates and be forced to generate fast ideas and then present them in a team environment I was so impressed. I have not seen a student organization like this. No parent involvement, just the kids thinking on their own. IF you ever get a chance to see the scenes, or the engineering structures kids in 2nd, 3rd and on create, it really is incredible. Then to watch my oldest daughter compete at globals was an unforgettable experience. To complete, interact with kids from all over the world was something she is working hard to do again. It is open to everyone and many teams stay together all the way into high school and we met several teams even in college. Talk about fun!
