Our Expo is Unique
Click here to see our past programs (2010 Smart Move, 2011 Body Forward, 2012 Snack Attack and 2013 Super Seniors) to get an idea of what our Expo is like. It is the largest outdoor Jr.FLL Expo in the nation. It also coincides with the Family Festival Day, a free town-wide outdoor event for kids of all ages to have fun.
In addition to the exhibitions done by children at a typical Jr.FLL Expo, we add special exhibitions and enrichment activities for participants, for examples:
- Live video conference with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineer on the Curiosity Mars rover that they were building
- Computerized driver-less SUV from Princeton University
- BioBus, a mobile biomedical engineering lab
The Post-Expo Surprise*
We do not stop just when our Expo is ended. We usually coordinate an additional activity for children who participate in our Expo to work on something at a later date. The post-Expo activities are to provide enrichment contents and to inspire our young scientists and engineers. In the past two years, we kept the details of the post-Expo activity as a surprise. The surprise was announced at the Expo. Here are examples of our post-Expo activities:
- After the Smart Move Expo, the participants created a card and sent it to NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory mission team (builders of Curiosity Mars rover). They received the response back from the mission team. See this article for the full story on that.
- Children who participated in Body Forward Expo were invited by St. Barnabas Medical Center to attend a special hands-on workshop in robotic surgery. They got to try out daVinci Surgery system. See this article for details of the post-expo event.
Highlights from May 2013 Expo*
