Volunteer For An Event

We are looking for adults 21+ to volunteer at our upcoming events. You get to work with a fun team of people judging teams. There is training available and we pair rookie judges with veterans. There is also a judge advisor that keeps all the judges organized and prepared. These events are remote –  you would meet with teams online. Judges interview teams about the process they used to build and program their robot as well as team management skills such as community outreach and communication. 

If you are interested in one of these opportunities please send an email to volunteer@firstnh.org
