AmeriCorps Positions at NASA to Bring Robotics to All Students in WV

Competitive robotics is sweeping across our state!  Last year over 500 teams competed in 12 unique programs, impacting more than 5,000 West Virginia students.  But, some students are still being left behind.  As of today, there are 19 counties with no robotics teams, and now you have a chance to make a real difference in the lives of our children! 

The AmeriCorps Program, High Rocks Educational Corporation, Robotics Education and Competition Foundation, Fairmont State University, and NASA’s IV&V Program have partnered together to bring competitive robotics programs to every county in West Virginia. 
If you are motivated to help students, educators, and our state while having fun, then please consider applying for one of our two full-time positions.  Through AmeriCorps, you will volunteer for one year to work with the NASA IV&V Educator Resource Center to recruit and train new teams, conduct scrimmages and tournaments, and help build a pipeline for students to turn their passion for robotics into a career path.
