Rhode Island Students of the Future and FIRST LEGO League Rhode Island needs volunteer judges, referees and event staff for our upcoming tournament season!

Judges meet with teams to review their robot design and programming, their research projects and to evaluate their core values. Referees keep score during the robot game matches. FIRST LEGO League teams are groups of 9 - 14 year olds who have spent the past 10-14 weeks building and programming a robot to score points on the FIRST LEGO League game field, and conducting research into a topic related to this year’s theme, "City Shapers." Event staff will be placed in roles for registration & information and Photography & Social Media, etc.

Judge Training is Tuesday, November 19, 6:00-8:00 pm (Judges must be 18 or older)
Referee Training is Tuesday, October 22, 6:30-8:30 pm (Referees are 16 or older)
Event staff are typically 16 or older

All training sessions will be held at the East Providence City Hall Conference Room, 145 Taunton Ave., E. Prov., RI 02914 (If you cannot make the judge training, there are online modules for the judges only)

Mission Statement

Rhode Island Students of the Future spreads enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and math through robotics. We encourage young people from all backgrounds to participate in real-world inquiry-based science, technology, engineering and math activities that develop leadership, critical thinking, communication and teamwork. We manage FIRST LEGO League and Jr. FIRST LEGO League in Rhode Island as well as the Robot Block Party, an expo that celebrates robotics, mechanical design and computer programming in industry, universities, community organizations and K-12 schools. These programs, which use robotics to engage 4-14 year olds in science and technology, serve over 800 students annually.

Description

Rhode Island School of the Future (RISF) is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization that engages Rhode Island children in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). RISF has a long history of supporting STEAM outreach for children and professional development for teachers, coaches and mentors. We produce the Robot Block Party, a STEAM expo, and were instrumental in bringing FIRST LEGO League (FLL), and its sister program, Jr. FLL, to Rhode Island in 2001 and 2005, respectively. We manage both FIRST programs under a contract with US FIRST in New Hampshire.
