and now that its finally here, we can't believe it! The Robotics pre-season has begun and we are looking forward to getting know all of you better this year.
We have began to search for any new and willing students to join our team. If you know anyone who is interested, point them towards our website or invite them to one of our pre-season meetings! We will be meeting every Wednesday after school from 3:00 pm to 3:30pm in Room C. Feel free to join us!
Robotics means a lot of things to many people. Some people use robotics as an opportunity to explore the worlds of engineering and programming. The knowledge gained in these programs helps many students every year with college tuition. Last year, the FIRST Organization gave out $16 000 total in scholarship money to students who had participated in their program. This program has helped many students to pay for college, and from their testimonials, its all worth it. Another aspect of being on our robotics team is the experience in business management. Students are required to raise funds for their upcoming season, and if they are unable pay the entrance fee, their team isn't entered into the competition. These students learn many skills in the business world such as presentations, speaking skills, as well as writing skills; all useful skills used in common-day careers.
We hope that you will be able to join us for this upcoming year! Let's make this one count!
