Event description

Description

New England FIRST Mentor’s Collaboration Network (NEMCoN) - The charter is to help FIRST mentors to become better mentors.

We expect our meeting format to consist of one or two short presentations on a topic of general interest which will be given by fellow mentors. Presentations will be followed by social networking and mentor-to-mentor discussions. NEMO will hold meetings during the off season, so mentors hopefully have time to participate and because the purpose of the organization is not meant to directly help with any specific game.

    • Welcome from MassRobotics & Steve Cremer (NEFIRST Regional Director)
    • NEMO overview, Mike McCormack
    • “Off Season Projects”, Mike McCormack
    • Mentor-to-mentor mentoring and networking

About Mike McCormack – Founder of NEMCoN

Mike has had two daughters in the First Robotics Competition and though they have now moved on he has not. Mike first looked for something like NEMO when he found himself the senior (aka sole) mentor of a second year team that also had a brand new faculty adviser to boot. After realizing there was little to help himself or other mentors looking to improve, he approached Joyce Sidopoulos and with the help of MassRobotics and Steve Cramer Nemo was formed.

About Steve Cremer - FIRST Regional Director of FIRST Programs

Steve is a "retired" Physics educator, who during his classroom years used robotics and engineering challenges to help ground his students in the foundations of physics concepts that their life experiences were not providing. During the past 15 years he has dedicated his energy and time in supporting the mission of the non-profit, FIRST in New England (www.firstinspires.org and www.nefirst.org)and currently is the FIRST Regional Director of FIRST Programs in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island where he provides volunteer and mentor support to the dedicated people serving in all FIRST Programs.
