Become a Member or Volunteer

First Robotics stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology“.  To have a team the DM Robotics must have a minimum of 2 or more mentors to coach the team through build season (Jan- April) and a minimum of 10 high school students to work together as a team.  Are you good at public speaking, writing, singing, fund raising, event planning, social media, graphic design, programming, building, electrical, playing video games, etc… we need you whatever your talent!

The really cool thing about FIRST Robotics Competition is…all skill levels are welcomed and needed, technical or non-technical.

As a Mentor or adult Volunteer we ask for your time after school and on occasional weekends during the build season.  As team members you will meet several times a week after school and on weekends until the season is over.    The Wolfpack welcomes all students with or without skills as we believe everyone has something to offer and our team needs all kinds of skills to suceed!
