Mentors make the world go round. Really! Think back and remember that person, or people who took some time and helped or inspired you. Are you ready for your turn to give back?
Ever heard the expression: "It takes a village?" Well we need 5 villages worth of volunteers to make these events happen! Volunteers help check in participants, point people in the right direction, help exhibitors, etc. This is a great service opportunity for clubs at the universities where the events are held. Feel free to contact us for more information.
Judge is a bit of a misnomer, or at least an understatement. Yes, you will score the inventors using a rubric we provide, but you will be so much more than that - a friendly encouraging adult, a source of inspiration, provider of constructive critisism. And you will get something out of it too (besides the swag we provide). You will not believe how talented these young people are. If they don't put a smile on your face, nothing will. Sound like its worth giving up a Saturday - you bet!
