FIRST Robotics team in Temecula recruiting mentors

Hi  Everyone,

I help mentor a FIRST Robotics team at a local high school here in
Temecula (we have 3 FRC teams just in our local area).
If you are not familiar with the FIRST FRC teams, it's a US-based
world wide volunteer organization started by Dean Kamen (the inventor
of the Segway).
We partner up local industry (engineers, business, graphic artists,
etc.) with a local high school team of students who are interested in
studying in technology (STEM) in the future.

Over 2500 high school teams compete world-wide each year culminating
in an annual Championship event in April.   The students (and their
mentors) have to learn a new game each year, then design, build, test,
and field a new robot within 6 weeks time.

Check out this year's game - Ultimate Ascent:

We just had our kick-off and we are recruiting mentors to help working
with our students.  Our team's students are also learning to run to
their team as a business (fund-raising, grants, etc.) and also to lead
their own team as well.   We are always learning, performing outreach,
recruiting more mentors, and recruiting more sponsors.

Let me know if anyone are interested.

Regards,

Wing Choi
