Do you have students in your class that have participated in First and are looking for scholarships to fill the gap to go to college? Make sure to pass along the BAE First Scholarship Program along to your students. You may even want to go over this with younger students so they know what the requirements are to ensure they qualify later in their high school career.  Online recommendation forms should be submitted the summer prior to senior year for students.
Going on field trips and getting guest speakers can be a challenge in the pandemic world we are living in. Recently, Joanna Marcotte, our CSTANH Social Media Liasion had 3 Amazon Engineers visit Franklin High School Via Zoom.  She signed up for this virtual guest speaker experience on the Amazon Future Engineering site.  One of the benefits of joining Amazon Future Engineering is a CSTA+ membership which will get you discounts on the National CSTA conference in Chicago this summer.
