HBHS FIRST Robotics team seeks mentors for 2016-17

HOLLIS -It takes a village to raise a successful student. How would you like to be a big part of high school students’ growth, education and success?

The Hollis Brookline High School FIRST Robotics Team 1073, The Force Team, is looking for mentors. No, you do not have to be an engineer. In addition to technical skills such as software, mechanics and electrical skills, our team of 70 students works on tasks such as fundraising, publicity, accounting, videography and writing. The students go on to not only become engineers, but also business people, teachers, graphic artists and entrepreneurs.

Many mentors have not only nurtured these students in their field of expertise, but most importantly, the students learn teamwork and organization, and get exposure to many fields.

Team 1073 is looking for mentors who can work with our high school students once a week in the fall and a few times per week in the winter. All skills are valuable: teamwork, organization, leadership, creative writing, photography, business planning, new technologies, software programming, electronics and mechanical.

Currently, we are looking for a software mentor and electrical mentor to lead those subgroups, and welcome mentors for the mechanical, integration and business subgroups. For more information, email Sue Hay at sue.hay@sau41.org.
