Winter Robotics Program – Lead and Assistant Instructor Positions

DATE:  November 20, 2019     CATEGORIES:  Somerville Media Center Partnership

Artisan’s Asylum, Boston’s largest makerspace, is recruiting instructors to design and run two project-based learning experiences in robotics.  

In a new partnership with two South Korean universities, Artisan’s Asylum will host two groups of 15 students who will learn creativity, collaboration and hands-on problem-solving in an immerse, cross-cultural environment.  Designed as a crash course in robotics, the program will challenge participants to work and play together as they develop autonomous robots that can navigate a maze of their design. 

We’re looking for enthusiastic lead instructors, assistant instructors, and technical mentors who love to facilitate amazing experiences for young people. While we’d prefer that instructors be available to teach both workshops, this is not required for consideration.

  • Lead Instructor
    The lead instructor will lead the design of a turn-key project-based learning curriculum and create a magical experience in team building, problem-solving and creativity for students throughout the day. Compensation is $1,500 per workshop.
  • Assistant Instructor
    Assists lead instructors in building a fun and supportive learning environment while guiding student groups as they work through their robot and maze design projects. Compensation is $1,250 per workshop.
  • Technical Mentors
    Be available for at least two hours for 3 to 6 days, provide expert assistance in design thinking, programming, engineering or arts fabrication. $500 honoraria.

You could be a great fit if you are a team building junkie in love with creativity and design, are familiar with coding and have taught young people before. Bonus if you know what project-based learning is, and think robots are cool!
