ORGANIZATION: Hope Horizon East Palo Alto

  • 7 people are interested

East Palo Alto is in the center of "big tech" and STEAM career opportunities. As a coach you can help cultivate a STEAM foundation and background that would allow students to step gain skills and explore potential STEAM careers.

We host FLL and FLC clubs at our program. FLL (Fist Lego League) is for upper elementary and middle school students and participates in the First Lego League Challenge. This is a robotics competition where students build a robot using Lego Mindstorms. The learning curve for coaches is easy and no experience is needed to be a coach.

The high school robotics team participates in the First Robotics Competition (FRC). August to November is the fall off-season where the team preps for the competition season and participates in local competitions. The competition kickoff is in January and competitions are in late March and early April. Most FRC coaches have a robotics/STEM background.

Hours vary depending on the grade level, but typically the program meets once a week on a weeknight and on Saturdays. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our Volunteer and Communications Manager via email:
