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.
Here at PS10, our lead parent has customized a unique curriculum that is specific to our students and furthers their critical thinking through this STEAM initiative. 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. Here is a blog post and video about FaceLab in NYC schools.
* We need YOU! No experience necessary and your student does not have to be in the workshop. Just have a healthy desire to help guide students on their journey to finding the answers…even if you don’t know the answer yourself! Assistance looks different each day. It can sometimes come in the way of helping correct the structure of the robot, or by asking questions to help the team create the correct program for the challenge and everything in between.
The next round of workshops begin this week. We encourage volunteers to sign up for as much of the session as your schedule allows for consistency in the program.
