Faculty, staff and students are invited to volunteer for the CU Denver First Lego League tournament on Saturday, November 9, 2019. The tournament will host more than 30 teams from almost as many schools in the central Colorado region. Teams average seven participants per team, ages 9-14. (more info on FLL)
This is a wonderful outreach opportunity for CU Denver that services more than 200 students and their families. The success of the tournament relies on volunteers, and those who volunteer find it to be a very rewarding experience. Volunteering opportunities include:
- judging (robot design, research project, team work)
- score keeping
- various event assistance
The primary tournament location is in Student Commons, with judging rooms in North Classroom. Timing for volunteers: Saturday, 11/9 from 7:30 a.m. through 4 p.m. We also need help setting up Friday evening from 5 – 8 p.m., or cleanup 4 – 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.
A complimentary lunch and snacks are provided for volunteers throughout the event on Saturday.
