Each year we have about 150 undergraduate and graduate students who volunteer their time to help with Mind Trekkers events. We even have a highly dedicated group of students who serve as our student organization Executive Board (Eboard). They put in many hours of hard work helping to plan and run events, fix broken demonstrations, update lesson plans, recruit members and coordinate the student organization's activities and local events.
