At TORC we are geared to build MENTORS.
TORC Student Mentor Activities
Our presentations in our elementary and middle schools has produced an increased interest in robotics. TORC created the Oxford FIRST Family to provide mentoring and unite our district FIRST teams. We now host FIRST teams in six of our seven district schools.
Through providing, materials, funding, field elements, and student mentors, we have enabled our JrFLL teams to expand from two teams in 2012 to seventeen registered and eight unregistered teams in 2013. In addition, our FLL teams were enabled to expand from four teams to seven registered and one unregistered team in2013. Our FTC team expects to double after winning the state championship in 2012.
In addition to mentoring our district FIRST teams, TORC provided the following:
•Volunteered at the 2013 Daniel Axford/Oxford Elementary JrFLL Expo as judges and staff, where sixteen of Oxford’s JrFLL teams competed.
•Provided judges and staff for the Clearlake Elementary JrFLL Expo
