Coach Kids Who Love Math
Youth preparing for an awesome VEX Robotic Competition experience, need caring adults to work side-by-side with them as head coaches and assistant coaches.
Help the team plan, build, and operate robots in preparation for their robotics competitions. Coaches work to inspire self-confidence, develop project planning and problem solving skills, while developing a hands-on appreciation of science and technology.
Teams meet after school and evenings at ten Fairfax County locations from October 2014 through March 2015. Time commitment is about 2 hours per week.
What is VEX Robotics? VEX is a specifically tailored program that brings the magic of robotics competition to youth ages 10-18. It's learning and fun as it integrates all facets of STEM education and head-to-head competition.
Important Dates: Deadline is September 15, 2014. For more information about the VEX Robotics teams in Fairfax County, including locations and information sessions.
Can't volunteer? Support VEX with a donation to the program.
More info; requirements; and responsibilities.
