Baltimore County Public Schools seeks volunteers to serve in key roles during upcoming robotics tournaments.
The Robotics Education and Competition (REC) Foundation and VEX have partnered to provide free, online training, testing, and certification for those interested in serving as volunteers.
“This will be our first full year of hands-on robotics events since the onset of the pandemic,” said Dr. Michael E. Grubbs, BCPS coordinator of career and technical education. “In addition to judges and referees, we need volunteers for other key roles, too.
Experience and/or a technical background are helpful but not required. Most of all, good volunteers listen, collaborate, and give their time to students who are eager to show their knowledge and demonstrate their creative robot designs on the playing field and during the interview process.”
Those interested in volunteering at any of the following events are asked to contact the event organizers.
