STEAM Opportunities

STEM Center Projects: Including Robot Rebuildling, LEGO sorting, and more!

The USRA STEMaction Center has a buffet of small volunteer projects that we're aiming to complete on the MLK day of Service. Some projects include: building robots for our training set, basic carpentry to add shelves/door to existing structures, organizing supplies, and putting up decor. This is a great opportunity to bring your family and friends. This project is also appropriate for ages 13 and up. Note: To signup a volunteer that does not meet the minimum age only the minimum age with adult age, parents/adults need to create a team which includes themselves and the volunteer(s) that are under age. The parent/adult can then “sign up with a team” for the opportunity selecting the team members who will volunteer. Click here for more information related to Family & Youth Group Volunteers.
