Great read... and a few thoughts:
1. He should issue a challenge to EVERY FIRST LEGO League team to raise funds during their competition season to buy one or two of the water systems (mentioned at the bottom of page 3). Let every FLL team sponsor a water purification system for a village that needs clean water.
2. To someone who knows Dean personally - please ask him to bring the electric car to FLL in Atlanta next year.
3. Kids - do NOT follow Dean's example and quit school - it worked for him but the odds are not in your favor. Stay in school and learn as much as you can.
