The New Cool – a look inside the FIRST Robotics Program
P.W. Singer said of this book: “If America is ever going to fix its broken education system and re-energize the economy, we’re going to need more schools, teachers, and kids like those in this book.”
As the 2011 FIRST Robotics Program goes into high gear, this is a wonderfully informative book for parents, educators, legislators and students alike. A compelling read. Buy it here.
Bascomb also wrote a piece for The Huffington Post about how we could change our educational system to take advantage of technology, make better use of teachers and improve student outcomes. A must read.
