Life Remodeled is looking for volunteers for a community service project in the neighborhood around Denby High School. Life Remodeled is a Detroit-based nonprofit working to renovate homes, remove blight, and beautify neighborhoods. Volunteers are needed August 1-6. NSBE will be participating on Saturday, August 6 from 8am to noon. You are free to volunteer any day, but if you are planning to volunteer with NSBE, contact Crystal Watkins (email@example.com
) to let her know. She will have more information about when and where to meet closer to the day of the event.
The Wayne State Chapter of NSBE is hosting a water drive for the people of Flint. They are accepting both monetary donations and bottles of water from now until February 17th. Additionally, they need volunteers to help drive the donations to Flint on February 17th.

NSBE Detroit Professionals,
The NSBE chapter at Lawrence Tech University is launching their own NSBE Jr. program on February 6th. This Saturday, January 30th (10:30 am to 1:00 pm), the LTU students will be doing a practice run of the program, and they are looking for volunteers to help. The run through will take place on the LTU campus. If you are interested in volunteering this Saturday, or if you would like to help out with the actual program on a weekly basis, contact Mashia Kellum (email@example.com
) or Ivoire Morrell (firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is the link to volunteer for the NSBE Jr. chapter. Remember that this is a semester long commitment on Saturdays starting February 6th, 2016. On January 30th, 2016 we will be doing a run through of the first half of the activities so that we know how much supplies we need and how long it will take us.
We only need 10 volunteers and half of those must be LTU-NSBE members. It would be awesome if the other half is from the NSBE Detroit Professional Chapter.
For more information about the NSBE Jr. program, check out the attached documents.
Greetings Colleagues & Future FRC Judges,
As someone who has either participated or expressed interest in judging at a FIRST event in the past, or someone that I just think would be great at inspiring society’s next generation of engineers and scientists, I am contacting you to determine your willingness and availability to volunteer as a judge at the FIRST Robotics Competition Southfield District Event at Southfield High School on March 4 ~ 5.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) seeks to transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes. The FIRST Robotics Competition involves teams of high school students designing, building and operating their own robot that competes in a game challenge. Information on this year’s game challenge, “FIRST STRONGHOLD,” is available at: http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc/welcome-to-first-stronghold.
As a judge, you will interview team representatives to determine their eligibility for a number of different awards based either on team or machine attributes. When final teams are selected, you will be asked to prepare an award script and participate in the awards ceremony at the end of the competition. Judges are required to be available from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.
If you could, please let me know if you would be available to participate this year. If you are interested in volunteering, I would also ask you to sign up for the event using the US FIRST Volunteer Information Management System portal at: https://my.usfirst.org/FIRSTPortal/Login/VIMS_Login.aspx.
If you but cannot attend this event but would be interested in judging at another Michigan District event, a complete list of events is at: http://firstinmichigan.org/FRC_2016/frc_2016_season.html. I would be happy to forward your information to the Judge Advisor at any other District event.
On behalf of FIRST, I thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you soon.
