We are looking for mentors that are willing to guide our 4th and 5th grade students at Boze Elementary in Tacoma through the process of building and coding robots for the First Lego League.

The First Lego League Club will be meeting on Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45pm-5:45pm from October 26th to December 9th.

Since 1996, Technology Access Foundation (TAF) has worked to bring STEM skills to underrepresented students of color. We equip students of color for success in college and life through the power of an interdisciplinary STEM education and supportive relationships. Today, TAF’s programs impact over 14,000 public school students across Washington State. Additionally, TAF offers a Martinez Fellowship in which we provide and support multiple pathways to a teaching degree for teachers of color in order to improve teacher diversity and retention in Washington State.
