Review for Foundation for Community Driven Innovation, Inc. (FCDI), Odessa, FL, USA
At the beginning of the 2015/16 FIRST Robotics Competition season, the Foundation for Community Driven Innovation offered the teams of the surrounding area an incredible opportunity. Visit the Doolittle Institute and Softwerx public/private partnership with the United States Army and have your teams robot inspected by its engineers. Needless to say our team, 5276 the Edgar Alan Ohms jumped at the chance. The Engineers were supposed to only be able to spend 30 minutes evaluating our robot. Instead they spent 2 hours with our students. It was one of the most rewarding moments for myself as a coach, and without the hard work of the Foundation it wouldn't have come to pass. This organization is striving to promote STEAM activities on a community by community basis, and it is their hard work that makes moments like the one I described above possible.
