FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is holding their robotics championships at George R Brown convention center April 18-21. All grade levels will be competing in 4 different events – Lego League, Lego League Jr, FIRST Tech, and FIRST Robotics. Our section gives out a scholarship for FIRST participants and this is a great way to see what we support!
April 18-20 (Wednesday-Friday), SWE HQ will have a booth at the Innovation Faire for the 10th year! Randy Freedman, Director of Student Programs, is recruiting local SWE support. Volunteers will assist Randy by speaking to students about SWENext membership, scholarships, awards and events. Volunteers will also talk to girls about their own experience as women engineers.
No pre-knowledge or prep required. Here is a link for SWE volunteers to use to sign up for a booth shift. http://societyofwomenengineers.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer/?start_over&id=27777. Shifts are in one hour increments and volunteers are welcome to select multiple shifts. SWE HQ will reimburse volunteers for parking expenses.
