Hey Game Changers!

Your involvement at the Game Changer Conference has been instrumental. We’re eager to hear your unique perspective, which is key to fueling our mission. Now, it’s your turn to inspire and guide us in revolutionising STEM education together- Let’s build More Than Robots!

About you

Tell us…

Reflect on the overall effectiveness of the training, including content, delivery, and how it prepared you for your role. Feel free to mention specific aspects that worked well or areas that could be enhanced.

Think about the emotions you experience while volunteering. Do you feel inspired, fulfilled, challenged? Share any particular moments that stood out. If you’ve never volunteered with us before- what are you most looking forward to?

Consider what drives you to contribute your time and skills. What aspects of your involvement with FIRST are most important to you?

Consider what attracted you to FIRST and what might appeal to others. Do you have suggestions for outreach, communication strategies, or engaging potential volunteers?

Reflect on individuals, companies, or organisations that might align with the values and goals of FIRST. Consider who could bring valuable skills, resources, or perspectives, either as volunteers or as partners in collaboration.

Shout from the rooftops!

Can you believe not everyone knows about what we do? Crazy, right? Help us spread the word and start meaningful introductions. This is more than building robots, it’s building collaborative connections. Tell your organisation, your neighbours, your social media followers and their pets that we’re building a movement they’ll probably want in on.

“Volunteers are so important to the program because they can act as role models for young people. They make working in technology feel like a reality to them.”
