FIRST volunteers work with students after school in a fun, interactive setting where they can apply science and math principles to build robots. FIRST volunteers might work with grade school and middle school students involved with FIRST Lego League robotic challenges or at the high school level with the FIRST Robotics Competition, a high-energy robotics competition. In Kansas City, volunteers are critical to the FIRST tournament experience for over 3,000 students in grades K-12.
Local volunteer registration takes place through the national FIRST system. Once you register, you can search for events in Kansas and Missouri to sign up.
