Volunteer

Volunteers

VEX Robotics events are dependent on volunteers to make the event a success.  In particular, we need judges with a STEM background to review our competitor's engineering notebooks, interview teams, and determine which teams are deserving of the judged awards.  No experience is necessary.  Some preparation time is necessary, though: it takes 1-2 hours to review the judging criteria and an read through an overview of the judging process.  Our event will have an experienced judge advisor to guide our panel of judges through the process on the day of the event.

To get more information about serving as a volunteer, or to sign up to be a volunteer, please email us at leader@s3robotics.org
