For the mechanically-inclined readers of the CNYO website, the following request-for-volunteers-and-expertise was sent to the TACNY listserv today. If you can help, please consider doing so!
Any robotics experts or hobbyists out there interested in inspiring and educating CNY youth?? We are in need of volunteers to judge, referee, and otherwise support two imminently upcoming and FABULOUS youth STEM competitions:
* CNY Regional Vex Robotics Challenge, Saturday Jan 11th @ the MOST
* Northern NY VEX Toss Up State Championship, Saturday Jan 25th @ the SRC Arena
The following positions remain critically needed and available: Practice Field Manager, On-Deck Manager, Pit Referee (2), and Judge (3). We also have other areas in which we would greatly appreciate support, such as food distribution, registration, practice field assistant, on deck assistant, and more!! If you are able and willing to volunteer, please let us know
– whether you have a position preference,
– whether we may freely assign you,
– whether you have robotics-consciousness, and
– which event you are interested in volunteering for.
If you can volunteer, please arrive at the event(s) at or before 7 AM, as registration begins at that time. Details regarding the events can be found on the associated links above.
Your time and energy are valuable and invaluable!! Volunteers will receive a breakfast snack and lunch at both events.
Both competitions are substantially supported by TACNY, Lockheed Martin, TimeWarner Cable and NASA.
Please share this note with your associates, colleagues and students. We do hope that many of you can assist!! Please email email@example.com if you would like to be a VEX competition volunteer!!
