The Robotics Mentors for 2014


Coaches Responsibility

An FRC Coach works with his or her students by helping them to develop skills and to design and build a successful robot. They guide teams through any issues they encounter, making them stronger in both their school and personal lives. They inspire students in ways far beyond science and technology and enable both students and adults to appreciate the value of sportsmanship, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism in a way that might not be possible otherwise. USFIRST Behind the scenes, the coach works with organizing places to meet for the team, reservations for the regionals and kick-off, in charge of fundraising as well as serves as the main contact from FIRST headquarters to the team. Also, the main contact for parents and team members alike.

Mentor responsibilities

FRC Mentors play a vital role in the success of their students. Mentors work extensively with team members during the build season, designing, building, and fabricating a functional robot for Competition. Their expertise is the catalyst for the team's and students' success. FRC Mentors are the major distinction between the FRC program and other robotic competitions as they are wholly the professional role model for the student. Mentors engage and inspire students in ways far beyond science and technology. They enable both students and adults to appreciate the value of sportsmanship, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism.
