More than volunteering

Donate your time and experience at robotics tournaments to inspire a generation of makers.

Where technology meets sport

FIRST Tech Challenge UK events are fuelled by a squad of passionate ‘Game Changers’ volunteering their time to deliver epic experiences.

Whether you’re a seasoned event pro or a total newbie, we need your help to create events that transform lives.

“The most rewarding moment is seeing my senior staff – twenty, thirty years experience – interacting with young students, giving them the benefit of their experience and inspiring them to become engineers of the future.”

Roles to match your skills

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, although kudos if you are. You just need loads of energy, enthusiasm and a desire to do good.

The techies

You love gadgets, work in tech or simply like robots. You’ll troubleshoot and provide technical support, so teams and their bots are game ready.

The gamers

You like to be at the heart of the action! On the game field or running matches like clockwork, you’ll keep scores in check and call out foul play.

The organisers

You have an unhealthy appreciation for spreadsheets and to-do lists. Flex your project management muscles and keep the show going.

Boss it with training

Not sure you’re cut out for the job? Most roles only need you to rock up on the day with no prior experience. With specialist roles we’ll provide online training and an A-Team leader to lean on too, so you’ll never be left in the lurch.


We’ve got your covered

You donate your time and everything else is on us! We’ll cover reasonable travel expenses and keep you fuelled with food and refreshments on tap. You’ll look the part in our official Game Changer gear. Above all, we promise positive vibes, awesome networking and a feel good buzz.
