We are looking for volunteers interested in empowering youth through team work on a youth robotics team. Volunteers will meet weekly with children to coach them on basic computer programming skills and team work. We will be mentoring and coaching children aged 8-12 for the Legos team and ages 13-17 for the VEX team.
Legos Coaches provide the children direction with problem solving, public speaking, computer programming, and robot building with legos bricks. VEX team volunteers will coach the children with robot building skills including use of gears, batteries, motors, sensors, computer programming, and trouble shooting. The mentors and coaches are guides but the children must develop their own team solution and project presentation.
Volunteers can expect a time commitment of 2 hours, Saturday for the duration of the school year. October '16-April '17. Computer science and robotics experience is not required. Training will be available by First Lego League and other coaches. This Oppurtunity is located at W.E.B. Dubois Leaning Center, KCMO
