Join the Team
Our team is always on the lookout for prospective members, whether it be at outreach events, competitions, or the FLL or 4H teams that we mentor or come in contact with. We hosted an open house this year, where we brought in team prospects for a meeting about FIRST robotics at our HQ. Two of our current members attended that meeting as prospects, a few of them joined our FLL team, and a few were even too young to join robotics, but we keep in contact with them for future seasons.
Become a Mentor
While many of our mentors are our team members' parents, we also reach out to industry professionals if we need answers or help with very specific challenges. Mentors come to us from all backgrounds - not just technology - and supports the team with topics like programing, building, business and project management, marketing, fundraising, and more. If you are looking for a way to give back to the community, share your knowledge with others, and inspire (and be inspired) by our youth, this could be your opportunity!
Let Us Help You
Starting a new FTC team can be a challenge, so we are here to help. If you have any questions about starting a team - or if you are a current team looking for suggestions or feedback, reach out to us. This past year, we've helped our First Lego League affiliate team (whom we share our headquarters with), we've assisted the robotics club at a local middle school, and we've coordinated local scrimmages for teams to practice prior to the meets. So how can we help you?
