    Hello! My name is Thu Le, and I’m trying to compile a list of contacts from all A.O.E. chapters for our own Gamma (NCSU) chapter! Do you have a primary email for your chapter? Thanks!

    Dear Alpha Omega Epsilon at the University of British Columbia – Okanagan,

    My name is Caitlin Creech and I am the Global STEM Corps Director at FIRST Global. I work for FIRST Global, a non-profit organization founded by Dean Kamen. You might be familiar with other FIRST organizations, like FRC, FTC, or FLL. We are our own independent FIRST group, based on Dean’s original vision of bringing STEM education to every child around the world. We are putting on an international robot Olympics event this July at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. We have 146 countries signed-up so far, including the six nation’s on the travel ban list, and Iraq. Only one team per country is able to attend, truly making this a grand event!

    I am writing to you because we are searching for more members for our Global STEM Corps. We had originally planned for a maximum of 70 teams, and we have since more than doubled that effort! While I am so excited to bring this many teams together, that also means we need even more help. The Global STEM Corps Advisor Team program is kind of like the online version of the Peace Corps– inspiring the next generation of STEM students and professionals. We want to give students from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe the support they need to compete against teams, like the US or Australia, who already have robotics education programs in place. We have teams of about 3 people who each contribute about 2 hours a week to helping their team. Some of our international teams have very little experience working with robotics, so they need help from engineering experts, like yourselves, to help them build their robot. We want every team to come with a complete, functioning robot no matter where they are from.

    I set volunteers up with a team and connect them to the international team they will be advising. The Advisor Team would set a schedule with their international team and then go from there. Right now I have about ten nations in need of an Advisor Team, which is why I am getting in touch with you. We have several all girl teams, and about 70% of our international teams came about because of a woman, something I am proud of considering the global shortage of women in STEM field. I personally would like to see more women enrolled in our program than men, so I would love to get your chapter involved. Advisor’s have the ability to impact a child’s life and inspire them to continue on in the STEM fields.
