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.

    Princess Project 2019

    Every year during prom season, the Chula Vista Library participates and collaborates with Princess Project San Diego to provide free prom dresses to high school teens. We want our young ladies to enjoy their experience and offer them interactive workshops for hair, make-up and skincare from our partners Paul Mitchell the School and Mary Kay. In the selection of their perfect dress we celebrate bodies of all sizes, ethnic background or socio/economic situation.

    The Chula Vista Library has been a Princess Project dress giveaway location for the last six years, for which the last three years Ms. Trujillo-Lopez has been the coordinator. In an effort to make the year a little better, the Chula Vista Library partnered with Olympian High School to create a short marketing video. Mr. Exum and his students were fabulous and created an amazing product.

    The event is coming up shortly, on April 6, 2019.
