Hello. Im from a team in Bethpage Ny and we really need mentors.
Right now we have one full time member who is a Tech Teacher. He gets overwhelmed and angry with the mass amount of work he does. We also have a programming mentor and an orchestra teacher mentor (Takes care mostly of purchase orders, fundraisers, ect)
What we need is mechanical mentors.
Our electrical team is decently strong
our programming mentor is a genius so we are set with that
Our mechanical and building side is weak…very weak.
We built our an entire robot out of L bracket and bar stock if that says anything.
I just want to know where everyone finds mentors. We are going to do more community interaction this year including library exhibits and school based showoffs.
before anyone asks no one else inerdistrict wants to get involved.
and…the only substancial sponsor we have is cablevision which is great but they can only help with programming and wiring.
