Supporting FAMNM as a Student Organization
Partner for Volunteer Hours
FAMNM hosts and participates in a variety of on and off campus events throughout the school year.

Middle and High School Outreach Opportunities FIRST Robotics Students
FAMNM's on and off campus events are great places to interact with future wolverines, their families, and the Ann Arbor Robotics community. All of our north campus events are great places to demo your team's project to enthusiastic students or set up a table to engage your target communities. Most of these events fall between August and January, contact [email protected] for the current dates.
Connect with the College of Engineering Community
FAMNM enthusiastically participates in a number of College of Engineering community-building events. Join us for the CoE Diversity Mixer, listen to other organization's stories with us at DEI-focused symposiums, learn about the Ginsberg Center's sponsored organization's efforts at their annual poster session, and more. Again, [email protected] has the scoop on our on-campus community events.
