Coaching or mentoring a Swerve Robotics team makes you part of a community of amazing volunteers. Your time, your wisdom and your commitment will have a direct impact on the students you work with and the community you will be a part of.
All coaches and mentors:
- Meet with teams regularly
- Provide as much, or as little, time as your schedule permits
- Help your team succeed by encouraging, guiding, and supporting your students
- Build excitement for science, technology, engineering and math through the programs
Coaches are specific to a team and mentors work across multiple teams.
We have three different programs that coaches and mentors can work across:
FLL Jr. – 6 – 10 years old – Students research a themed topic for the season and build a model to demonstrate the information that they have learned.
FLL – 9 – 14 years old – Students research a themed topic for the season and build a robot using a LEGO Mindstorms NXT kit to compete in a robotics contest.
FTC – 12 – 18 years old – Students design and build a custom robot from the new LEGO Tetrix kit to compete in a contest.
