Wanted: FIRST Junior STEAM Ahead mentors

Manchester School District is looking for mentors who can help bring FIRST® Junior STEAM Ahead into our fourth grade classrooms! 
FIRST® Junior STEAM Ahead is a community partnership between Manchester School District and FIRST®, with the goal of sparking students’ interests in science, technology, engineering, art and math. During lessons that apply math and science concepts, teams of four students design, build, and program robots using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® and other elements. 
After a successful pilot year, FIRST® Junior STEAM Ahead will be in seven elementary schools for the 2015-16 school year.
Parents, members of our business community, retirees, and anyone else interested in being part of innovative education in Manchester qualify to become mentors -- no technical or FIRST LEGO League experience necessary! 
If you can provide 90 minutes of your time once a week, we want to hear from you! To start, please fill out our mentor registration form, and we will contact you with more details, including information about mentor training in August to get ready for the start of the school year.
