We need volunteers to:

  • Help with judging student vehicles on engineering, craftsmanship and best use of recycled materials.
  • Be a start line judge that can help students attach their cars to the guide wire and to determine the race began cleanly (no attempts at cheating).
  • Be a finish line judge that can help students remove their car form the guide wire and to keep track of the order that cars cross the finish line.
  • Help students sign in when they arrive by inspecting their car and providing them with a judging number.
  • Help students at the repair table to assist using various tools. These volunteers must be careful as tools will be either sharp or very hot.
