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 sixth grade at Hollister Elementary School, have been 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. Before Covid-19, since 2012 I had been organizing the "Hollister School LEGO Robotics Challenge" in May, which was attended by several schools in the Goleta Area. I am looking forward to resuming our robotics program and next year re-launching this fun event.
