FIRST® LEGO® League CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

Posted By Wendy Nkomo, Colorado Technology Association (CTA), Thursday, October 29, 2015

FIRST® LEGO® League Introduces students ages 9-14 to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FIRST LEGO League teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.

FIRST LEGO League Competition Volunteers:
■ Help kids discover the fun in science and technology
■ Have a positive impact on the lives of children
■ Are inspired and energized through their participation
■ Generally, commit a full day of time to making the LEGO League competition a success (time depends on role)
■ Are provided with training, breakfast, lunch and a t-shirt
■ Perform activities like setup, check-in, refereeing, judging, queuing, scorekeeping, AV, and cleanup
■ Make new friends with like-minded people
■ Volunteer together with friends, family, and colleagues
■ Have fun!

this doesn’t require special skills and there is online training.
