Volunteer Work

Upon entering this team, we decided that each of us would strive to obtain at least 40 hours of community service over the course of the year. Our response to aid and guidance that we have received.
Currently we have initiated a tutoring schedule, in which the members of the Inven Team will be staying after school each day to help out fellow students in corresponding Project Lead the Way courses. Our goal is to be able to have at least one EDD member in each of the three classrooms available every day. I have created a public google calendar, where members can reserve rooms for tutoring and keep track of their hours. It can be found at:

Also, Max and Logan have been volunteering at the Division Street Elementary School Lego Club. The club gives 3rd and 5th graders a chance to learn problem solving skills and expand their engineering knowledge. The students also get the opportunity to use and program one of three Lego NXT robots. There are 15 elementary students that will meet for 9 weeks, after this time a new group of students will enter the club. The Lego Club meets every monday from 3:30 to 5:30. Max and Logan have been guiding the students in programing the robot and constructing models. We hope to get the majority of the team involved in this project.
