Local Students need Your Help

City Charter High School recently lost their mentor for their FIRST

team, and are looking for someone to help them with design.  They must

ship in 24 days!  City Charter is Title 1 and most students are living

below the poverty level.  They tell me that even if you cannot make a

multi-visit commitment, having someone with design expertise give them

some guidance would be extremely beneficial.

If you are interested, please contact Debbie Domingues-Murphy (see below).



PS If you end up helping them, please let me know so that your

generosity can be recognized!


City Charter High School ( is a downtown charter school

with a FIRST robotics team.  We are looking for mentors to assist in the

design of our robot.  We currently have mentors with programming experience,

but lack engineering expertise.  Information about this year's challenge can

be found at  We meet Mon-Fri, 2:30 to 5:00 at our school,

717 Liberty Avenue, 9th Floor, Pittsburgh.  We must ship by February 23.

Even if you can't make a long term commitment, a consultation and some

guidance would be greatly appreciated.

If you need more information, please let me know.

Thank you,


Debbie Domingues-Murphy, M.S.Ed.
