Familiarity with Google Suite and video editing is a must. The first responsibility is to help students navigate menus and follow along with online tutorials. You do not need to have mastered all the technology they are working with, but you do need to have a willingness to learn beside them and work through problems. The curriculum began with simple machines, is moving to Circuit Playgrounds with Adafruit, then onto four unique projects.
The primary focus will be to assist students in grades three through twelfth as they work through Future Engineering Challenges. You are not alone. Support is there for you as well. Your project groups are as small as one student and as large as six.
