Welcome to NEMO (Non-Engineering Mentor Organization)
We deal with all the stuff that isn't rocket science!
NEMO (Non-Engineering Mentor Organization) is a support group and information exchange for those adult non-engineering mentors who help teams as part of the FIRST robotics programs.
The logo for NEMO is the feather, as taken from the magic feather in Disney's Dumbo. In the film, the feather helps Dumbo gain the confidence to take flight, much as a NEM is an integral part of allowing a team to get off the ground. The mentor is the main support, the "wind beneath the wings" for the team.
NEMO is celebrating its 11th anniversary! We invite you to attend our Annual Meeting on Friday, April 25, 2014 from 10:00 am to Noon in room 255, at the America's Center, St. Louis, during the FIRST Championships. This room has the best view in the house, overlooking the pit area! Come check it out!
Upcoming NEMO Meetings
We need photos!
We will be redesigning the NEMO website in the near future and are looking for photos of mentors to post on the pages. If you have a photo you'd like to share send it to: Kathie Kentfield. Make sure you have received permission from each of the mentors in the photo to share it with us before sending! And please include the mentors' names and team number.
