Parent Volunteers Needed for FaceLab Robotics Workshops 

FaceLab is a STEAM-based family engagement initiative sponsored by the DOE that trains parent volunteers in K-8 schools to support teachers in leading hands-on robotics and programming activities with students.  The workshops are co-taught with our lead parent and technology teacher and supported by trained parent volunteers. But these workshops are only successful with the help of additional parent volunteers who can assist the student teams to troubleshoot as needed.


Register here for classes on Mondays & Thursdays, Dec 13 – Jan 28

Register here for classes on Tuesdays & Wednesdays, Dec 11 – Jan 23


We need YOU! No experience necessary and your student does not have to be in the workshop.

 If you are interested in volunteering long-term, we are interested in providing you in-depth EV3 training. Just let us know.   If you have questions or would like more information please join the FaceLab Committee on Konstella or email
