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 (www.cityhigh.org) 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 www.usfirst.org. 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.
