Eric Prothero, Camp Director, Lead Instructor


Hello, I am Eric Prothero, program director and lead teacher of Camp GObotics. I have been an elementary school teacher for the Goleta Union School District since 1998, having taught kindergarten through sixth grades. I graduated from UCSB with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music, a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and a Masters Degree in Education. I currently teach fifth grade at Hollister Elementary School, and am the director of the Hollister School LEGO Robotics program, which has helped lead the way for the Goleta Union School District in the field of LEGO Robotics. I finished my fourth year as a FIRST LEGO League coach, and since 2012 have been organizing the "Hollister School LEGO Robotics Challenge" in May, which is attended by several schools in the Goleta Area.  Visitors are welcome!
