Middle School Robotics Team Coach

Gordon School is looking for an individual to serve as one of two coaches for the middle school robotics team. Starting on September 12, the team will meet at Gordon on Tuesdays and Fridays from 3:30 to 4:30 PM until January 12. There is no practice when school is closed for holidays. In addition to facilitating weekly practices, coaches accompany the team at two full-day First Lego League events: a state qualifier on Saturday, December 2 (hosted at Gordon) and the state competition on Saturday, January 13 (hosted at Roger Williams University). Compensation reflects this commitment to both practices and competitions.

Experience with Lego Mindstorms ev3 and/or First Lego League would be ideal, but we can provide training for the right candidate. Most important are an individual’s ability to connect with middle school-aged students, to work collaboratively with the other coach and family volunteers, and to provide structure and guidance that support students in using their practice time to design, test, and improve their own solutions to both the research project and robot game portions of the FLL Challenge.

If you are interested in being considered for this position, please contact Nick Terry at
