Student Robotics is governed by a Board of Trustees who are responsible for ensuring that we use our resources effectively to achieve our charitable goals. The way that we work is laid down in our constitution.

Members play an important role in supporting the Board of Trustees, contributing to the organisation's strategic direction and holding the Trustees to account.

Trustees and Members are volunteers. All Student Robotics volunteers (past and present) are invited to apply to become a Member of the charity. Anyone who is interested in becoming a Trustee who has the interest, time and skills to make a meaningful contribution to managing the charity should get in touch.
