NRRA is an All VOLUNTEER organization.  We do our best to offer as many opportunities for youth to experience STEM and Robotics.   Best way to join?  Participate in NRRA and Red Beard Panda outreaches at local community events  on our community STEM Calendar, especially the NRRA camps, which act as "try-outs."   There are no guarantees of open slots in a team.  However, we are happy to take your contact information and pass it along to volunteer coaches.  If they have an opening, a coach will contact you directly.   Please download this Interest  Form to complete for a NRRA volunteer to assist you.  You may mail it to 270 Morning Star Lane 24073  or email it to nrrobotics@gmail.comOr *NEW*, you can complete this Online Interest Form:
