There are so many different ways for people of all ages to get involved with the goals and missions of our team:
Become a Nerd of the North (Team Member)!
Any high school student across the state of Alaska is welcome to officially join our team and wear the label “Nerd” proudly! We need people with many different strengths to fill a wide variety of roles, ranging from the more technical ones such as designers and builders and programmers, to the more business ones such as fundraisers, book writers, illustrators, marketing and communications folks, etc. We are happy to connect remotely with students from other parts of the state.
Become a Nerdlet of the North (Team Member in Training)!
Middle school students are too young to be officially considered team members, but they’re not too young to start learning! Nerdlets are team members in training, and get the opportunity to shadow team members in multiple roles to start finding their niche and start learning the skills.
Become a Mentor!
We’re constantly looking for more mentors to help coach and teach us the many skills necessary for us to run an effective team. This includes technical skills like designing, building, and programming, as well as business skills such as marketing, branding, media development, fundraising, etc. We welcome expertise from mentors!
Become a Sponsor!
FRC is a pretty expensive program, from materials and equipment to out of state travel expenses. We greatly appreciate any support through financial contributions and/or in-kind donations. Click here to learn more!
