About the board

The FIRST Indiana Robotics Student Board of Directors is made up of student representatives from all across the state who create, support, and participate in a variety of community initiatives. The board is established to allow students to have a voice in the initiatives and decisions that would directly impact the state’s youth.  These students also take part in additional leadership training and networking opportunities that will strengthen their resumes.

Initiatives include:

  • Statewide advocacy efforts to have the state legislature help increase access to FIRST for all Hoosier children through coach stipends and registration assistance.
  • Mental wellness activities include handing out information at FIRST events about suicide prevention and mental wellness.
  • Volunteering at cross-program events to promote all levels of FIRST.
