JUNE 29 – 30, 2019 | JOHNS HOPKINS APPLIED PHYSICS LABORATORY | LAUREL, MD
Join Triangle and FIRST ® at Johns Hopkins University as the Maryland Tech Invitational (MTI) brings together FIRST ® Tech Challenge teams from the region, nation, and around the world who have demonstrated excellence in science, technology, engineering and math for a high-quality competitive off-season tournament.
Triangle will be hosting a booth in an effort to engage both FIRST ® students and alumni — informing them about Triangle, how we can support them through our National Scholarship, and ways we can support their efforts throughout the year. Additionally, MTI is in need of several volunteers for the weekend’s events.
If you would like to serve as a Triangle FIRST ® ambassador at one of our booth locations or a volunteer for the actual event, please click the button below.
VOLUNTEERING FOR FIRST®
As a Triangle FIRST ® Ambassador, you would be volunteering at one of the Regional or National FIRST ® events or Championships. Typically, ambassadors will be stationed at the Triangle booth, engaging with FIRST ® competitors, volunteers, alumni, and family members introducing them to Triangle, the support we offer, our National scholarship, and much more!
However, we understand that you may want to volunteer with FIRST ® in another capacity — which is FANTASTIC! We would just love to know about it! Please, still complete this form so that we know you plan on getting involved and then you can continue to the FIRST ® Volunteer Registration Site.
All volunteers (whether volunteering for Triangle or in another capacity) need to register as a volunteer on FIRST’s website, so please be sure to complete that final step! Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or FIRST@triangle.org.
