Volunteer Opportunities - Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit in Northwest Louisiana

The Cyber Innovation Center’s National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center (NICERC) is kicking off the 2017-2018 Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit (RARC) of Northwest Louisiana season, and we need an army of energetic volunteers to help make our competitions organized and fun for the 1,000 participating students. No previous robotics experience is needed!  There are many roles available, and instruction will be provided.

RARC competitions allow students in grades 3-12 to showcase their cyber and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills by competing in challenges against other students within their divisions (elementary, middle, and high school).  Our theme this year is Small Wonders, Big Possibilities. The students (grades 3-12) will explore concepts like chemistry, biology, nanotechnology, and, of course, robotics while participating in challenges on a competition mat designed to look like a laboratory. 
Our first RARC competition will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017, at the Bossier Civic Center (620 Benton Road, Bossier City, LA 71111). 
If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up at http://nicerc.org/rarc/northwestla/volunteer/. Also, please help us spread the word about this rewarding volunteer experience by forwarding this email and sharing or posting the RARC volunteer flyer found here.
Please contact me with any questions. Thanks for your support of RARC!
Thanks!
