Our Leadership

In order to handle and manage the vast resources under the scope of Team 3501, the Firebots elect a new Student Leadership Council every May. Although the students vote on the leadership candidates, all candidates must have certain qualifications and experience in order to run. Members serve for one year, must run for reelection each term, and receive specialized and dedicated training from the mentors.

Below are the current members of our Student Leadership Council.
