Volunteer FAQ

How do I volunteer?

It's easy!  Just visit our Volunteer Sign-Up page and complete our Google form. We will contact you prior to the Fly-Off with details of the event.  Please note:

If you're having difficulty signing up through our Google form, please contact us and we'll get you signed up! 

What experience do I need?

No experience (STEM or otherwise) is necessary.  We will get you up to speed when you sign up and when you show up at the event. You just need to be an adult, age 21 or older, who does not have an affiliation with any of our competing teams.

When do I show up?

We ask our volunteers to arrive 90 minutes early on Fly-Off day so that you can learn about the game, help with some set-up and show you where you'll be stationed.

What will I be doing?

We have lots of different jobs that help make the fly-off successful!  If you have a preference, please let us know on the volunteer sign-up form and we will do our best to accommodate your request.  We will assign the remaining jobs when you arrive at the event and walk you through what you need to do so that everyone will be comfortable with their assigned station.

What kinds of jobs do volunteers do?

Our needs change a bit depending on the game we're playing, but in general, these are the jobs that we need help with:

Remember, you don't need any prior experience to volunteer!  We'll train you when you sign up and when you arrive on site at the event.
