Come mentor middle school students as they prepare for their FIRST LEGO League competition. The competition involves three aspects: a robotics challenge, a spot teamwork challenge, and a research project/product that the team presents. This year, the topic of research is Animal Ambassadors.

Mentors have an important role. This is the first year that Jumoke students will enter the FLL competition. They do have a robotics coach to help them learn how to program the Lego Mindstorm robots, but mentors will encourage and guide the students during all aspects of preparation: teamwork, robotics, and research.

The team will meet on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from mid September through Thanksgiving. Mentors can come for one, two or all three days, depending on desire and schedule.

If you have an interest in working with STARBASE to help the Jumoke students get the most out of their FLL preparation, contact Ted Garner at STARBASE. Ted can be reached at
