There are 30 minute time slots labeled with the mentor who is mentoring during that slot (scroll down more to see the skill sets of our mentors). Let us know what you need help with in the response box. If you have specific questions, feel free to write it there so we can give you a better answer when we meet! After you sign up, we’ll send you a google meet link for the session. Please make sure. to sign up at least 3 days in advance, so we have time to send you a link. Feel free to sign up for multiple sessions in a row if you would like a longer mentoring session!

If none of the slots provided work, email hello@gearticks.com and we can set up a different time that works. 

We’ll release new slots to sign up on a biweekly basis!

We are also happy to meet or email with mentors to help with team registration and other logistics.

Our FLL mentors:

Our team has spent years mentoring and teaching FLL students.  Last season we spent over 100 hours mentoring 20 FIRST teams. All of our mentors have participated in FLL. Normally we join our local teams for their weekly meetings, but we recognize that this season is different, and it’s a lot harder for teams to get the help they need. To continue our efforts to help teams, we decided to reach out to a wider virtual community! If you are interested and want to learn more about our team visit our about us page here.
