Each year the district recognizes outstanding building volunteers with a program and reception. Rich's blurb from the district recognition is printed below. Thanks to Richard and all the volunteers.
"An electrical engineer, Richard volunteers each week to mentor students and assist with STEAM Academy projects. He teaches small electronics skills, drawing circuits, writing code, and using the Arduino micro controller. Richard is currently leading an Arduino seminar where he meets once a week with a small group of students helping them learn to wire and program using the Arduino Uno. Rich works to build a trusting and supportive environment for students to learn physical science concepts. His wealth of knowledge is an invaluable resource to the STEAM Academy staff and students."
