If you want to come see sparks ignite with both the Bots and the enthusiasm of the students, please volunteer at our competitions.

Copies of these forms can be found below and will be emailed to you after you confirm your volunteer registration. You do not need to print or email these forms. They are for your records.
Finally, ANYONE volunteering at our competitions, with the EXCEPTION of currently enrolled students, need to have the following free certifications/paperwork completed and on file with BotsIQ every 60 months:
- Report of criminal history from the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP)

All necessary paperwork and clearances should be submitted to Michel Conklin at [email protected].
