Robotics for All is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of leveling the opportunity gap by providing free STEM classes to underserved communities. This year, Robotics for All will be rebuilding its website using React.js after previously using a website creator called Weebly. Volunteers are needed to help rebuild the website and transfer files to RFA’s web hosting service when the time comes.

Tasks

  • Using the current Robotics for All Website as a reference, compile the website into React.js. The first priority will be the HTML/CSS and the JS should be implemented afterward.

  • Communicate with team members regularly.

Time Commitment

  • 3-6 hours/week of independent work.
  • 1 hour long team meeting per week if necessary.

Time Frame

  • The project will end about January 25th, 2021.

​Benefits

  • Earn community service hours for time spent in team meetings and independent work.
  • Gain web development experience and refine skills with this real-life application.
  • Volunteering with Robotics for All will look good on any resume, whether applying for a future internship, job, or college.
  • Potential future leadership positions may be offered, including positions on Robotics for All’s Board of Directors.

Requirements

  • 14 years of age or above.
  • Strong background in React.js.
    • An example project will be required for the application to validate your qualification in React.js.

Mission Statement

Mission: Robotics for All aims to inspire the next generation of students and volunteers to achieve their full potential, regardless of their background. Robotics for All strives to provide equitable educational opportunities to students of all backgrounds, particularly low income and under-represented students, with an emphasis on teaching the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The goal is to reduce the opportunity gap, allowing students to gain beneficial skills for the rest of their academic and professional careers. We believe that it is important for students to have access to a quality STEM education, regardless of socio-economic status.

Description

Founded in April 2017 and officially incorporated in July 2018, Robotics for All aims to bridge close the opportunity gap by providing equitable educational opportunities to students of all backgrounds, particularly underrepresented and underserved students. Our organization previously only provided in-person classes. In July 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we transitioned our program to an online setting and experienced breakneck growth. In just 5 months, we taught the same number of students as we did in our first 3 years of operations. Our current online classes are for K-8 grader and teach a variety of platforms including Code.org, Scratch, and Python.

Robotics for All is volunteer-based, with currently over 100 volunteers at the time of writing. Our volunteers hail from dozens of states across the United States and several other countries. We encourage you to apply to join our growing community of volunteers.
