My seven year old ds has been passionately working on the Lego
Robotics system for the last year. I am interested in finding him a mentor to share in his joy and love of learning about robotics. I am not much of a engineering person and trying my best to be interested yet I feel like he needs more. My dh is working a lot and can't do it right now. Any ideas? Where would I find such a person?

TIA!!~Jill

Jill- do you have a local homeschooling group? Ours has a Builders club, which began with one boy and his love of Lego's. We have a monthly newsletter, if you have something similar you could advertise in it.

Check with the engineering department of the local college. Even Big Brothers/Big Sisters may be able to set him up with an appropriate mentor. (the homeschooling schedule may be appealing to a college student) Is there a Lego Land nearby? Maybe an employee there is looking for an apprentice

Let us know how it goes, few more years and I'll be looking
