Event Description

The College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at Southeast Missouri State University is seeking volunteers to help as it hosts the sixth annual FIRST LEGO League (FLL) competition in the University Center.

The competition is for 4th to 8th grade students who will participate in teams. Students build a robot to complete a themed mission for points.

Volunteers are needed on Saturday, December 8 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone 16 or older is welcome to help. Little training is required, and most will be done the day of the event.

Volunteers can sign up at https://www.firstinspires.org/ways-to-help/volunteer . Volunteers who have an account, can sign in with their account information. If not, they can click “Register” in the upper right corner or the “Sign Up Here” option below the log in button. After a volunteer account is created, volunteers should verify their personal information and follow the “Volunteer Registration” option in the main dashboard and then select “volunteer at an event.” Volunteers should select the role in which they are interested.

Volunteers also are asked to complete a Youth Protection form. Those volunteering can select to pay later when signing up for the event, and FLL will cover that cost. Volunteers will receive an email confirming their completion of the Youth Protection application and another one once a background check has been completed.

For more information, contact Brad Deken at bdeken@semo.edu or (573) 651-2106.
