Volunteer Opportunity to support STEM-based training for elementary school students in Cincinnati, OH
TECHie Club is a new program developed by TECH CORPS and includes over 40 hours of hands-on, interactive lessons for 3rd – 5th grade students. The goal of TECHie Club is to expose students to different technology concepts, to incite interest and encourage exploration. This year, more than 15 TECHie Clubs will be implemented in Central and Southwest Ohio.
Volunteer Description: TECHie Clubs are comprised of up to 20 students and meet weekly for 60-90 minutes during the school year. Schools designate a Site Coordinator to manage students and assist volunteers. TECH CORPS staff trains and supports teams of tech-savvy volunteers to use the TECHie Club Implementation Guide and Lessons to introduce students to computing topics. Depending on the size of the school’s volunteer team, volunteers will visit the school weekly, bi-weekly or for just a few sessions.
