If you’re interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Mr. Rocheleau or one of our co-lead mentors first and then follow these steps:
#1: The Robotomies Constitution – Read me first!
Yes, it’s a large document, but it includes extremely important information about job descriptions and expectations that you MUST know!
#2: 2024 Application Form
Everyone must fill this out, even if you were a member last year!
#3 Sign up with FIRST
Sign up or log into your existing account and join team 1277. Again, if you were a member last year, go ahead and complete this step. Be sure to accept the “consent and release.”
#4 Complete a CORI Form
This form is required by law to be completed by any adult working with minors. It is a simple criminal background check. You must bring the form in person along with a government-issued photo ID to any main office in the district (including the HS). Please note that you only need to complete the fields with an asterisk *.
#5 Complete the Safety Quiz
You must pass this quiz with a 100% in order to be allowed to use the machines. Take the quiz as many times as needed.
Link to materials including videos.
Read the FIRST Safety Manual.
#6: Complete the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Training on the FIRST website. (Voluntary.)
