Robotics Judges Needed

The nationally recognized Sweetwater Robotics League is looking for volunteers to be Judges and Inspectors at the robotics events held throughout the year.

The task – to be able to talk with students, ask questions to decide award selection. You don’t need to be a rocket (robot) scientist or an engineer. Robotics involves a wide range of professions and walks of life.

The commitment – a few hours several Saturdays from October 2019 to February, 2020. You will be trained to put your life experience into practice.

If you are interested and you can volunteer some of your Saturdays please contact me. You will have fun, and you will be blessed seeing what our students can do. Contact me Joe Amaro at  joseph.amaro@sweetwaterschools.org.
