8033 is looking for mentors! We are a student-led, community based FRC team located in Piedmont, California that has students from 10 different high schools. Recently we have moved to a newly built lab space at Piedmont High School that has all the needed tools. We are also supported by Piedmont Makers, an active organization in FIRST. Despite our team only being 4 years old we have qualified for Worlds for the past two years, and have grown from 11 to over 50 members. In the coming years we hope to build even more competitive designs, further our impact on the community and continue providing an amazing STEM education to high schoolers in the Bay Area. We need help to accomplish this!
In the coming months, two of our wonderful mechanical mentors, Justin Page and Michael Abbot, will be finishing grad school and moving on to new horizons. This leaves our team with a few open spots for mechanical mentors.
We meet 5-7 days a week during the build season, weekdays after school and weekends all day. We are looking primarily for mechanical mentors that are available 2-3 times a week though any commitment is welcome. Ideally we’d like to find mentors who are willing to stay with the team for multiple years on end. If you are a grad student or have professional experience in your field, live in the Bay Area and are interested in this opportunity, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from anyone regardless of long term or weekly availability, and quantity of previous experience. Thank you!
