Adults (21+ of age) are needed to lead/assist in providing/supporting STEAM (Science, Technology,Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) realted opportunities to 6th through 8th grade students. These opportunities are offered as students create and build a competitive robot.

This is a perfect opportunity for retired educators/engineers who wish to share their knowledge/experiences with young people. Also a great opportunity for college students with STEM related majors...being able to put "robotics mentor" on a resume will look great to future employers.
