The Build Team gathers to discuss the possibility of a swerve drive on the robot.

This year’s robotics team is made of fifteen students and five mentors, who have already begun to create a perfect start on another season. 53% of the team is made of new members, who are all wonderful and willing to learn and be hands-on. The veterans are doing a fine job, hand-in-hand with the mentors on guiding the newbies. Robotics is split into three teams: Build, Programming, and Marketing. During the very start of this Build Season, builders are learning all of the components of the robot and have rough ideas on the materials and standards, programmers are working on their javascript coding skills, and the Marketing team is working on a new website and gaining sponsors.

At our most recent meeting, Mr. Tom Mc Cauley taught a lesson on how to use the CNC Router.

I like learning the new skills that come with building and programming the robot. ”
