Recruitment Process

NOTE: Recruitment for the Mechanical Team is closed.
It will be reopened in January, so stay tuned!

Our main recruiting season starts at the beginning of September. We run booths on Imagine Day and host an orientation session on the first Saturday of the school year. During this time you can meet our current team members, see our robot in live action, and learn more about the team.

All students interested in joining Snowbots are required to attend an interview, in addition those interested in joining the software team are also required to do the software challenge.

Schedule an interview by emailing us and we will arrange an interview time for you.

The Teams

Frequently asked Questions

Q: I have no experience with anything, will I be able to make it onto the team?

Q: I have missed the Orientation Meeting, can I still join?

A: Check this page, we will update it with the status of which teams are still accepting members.

Q: I don’t know which sub-team I want to join, what do I do?
