Help bring FIRST Robotics Competition to Melbourne

Volunteering at a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) event is a rich and rewarding experience. A typical competition day ebbs with highs and lows as students battle the inevitable ‘technical difficulties’ to get their robot on the field. The atmosphere is electric when students put their robot to the test and work with other teams to develop strategies to capitalise on the strengths of each robot. As a volunteer you help make this happen and become an integral part of the FRC community. Most positions require nothing more than a willingness to help-out, attending a 1 hour Volunteer briefing and a Working with Children Check (WWCC)!
