We, on FRC Team 1325, are so excited to present a series of panels featuring 1325 alumni. These remarkable students, now in university, or working, will be addressing your questions on various topics related to university - from admissions to careers to student life! These events are open to everybody - so stay tuned for more information and updates on upcoming panels!
Team 1325 alumni Panel #1 took place on Saturday, December 5th - 7:00PM EST to talk about the university admissions process. Our alumni (currently enrolled in various university programs) spoke about their experiences with the university application process as grade 12s and provided helpful tips and resources!
Team 1325 alumni Panel #2 took place on Sunday, December 6th - 7:00PM EST. The panel looked at choosing a career or pathway. Our alumni (currently working at companies such as Tesla, Apple, and RBC) spoke about their favourite (and least favourite) aspects of their careers / fields, how they chose the specific pathway they’re in, and how being a FIRST member has helped them throughout their career.

In the third panel in this series, our alumni (currently working at companies such as Apple, RBC, PCL Construction and SkyWatch, and mentors for our team) spoke about how being part of FIRST Robotics has helped them choose the career they’re part of, when applying to university, and interviewing for job positions!
