Student ambassadors work to share the FIRST experience with event attendees, invited guests, and VIPs. They educate and engage guests by discussing the build season, game challenge, and inspire their continued motivation, passion, and commitment to FIRST. Student ambassadors conduct tours, interface with invited guests, and interact with teams and students. Sound like fun? It is!
