The Department of Polytechnic Studies at Southeast Missouri State University is seeking volunteers to help as it hosts the fifth annual FIRST LEGO League (FLL) competition on Saturday, November 18. The competition is for 4th to 8th grade students who will participate in teams. Students build a robot from LEGO Mindstorm Kits and they use their robot to complete a themed mission for points. Volunteers are needed on the day of the event from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 18. Anyone 16 and older is welcome to help. Little training is required, and most will be done the day of the event. In exchange for time, volunteers will be provided breakfast and lunch. Volunteers can sign up at http://firstinspires.org through VMIS.
