PlEASE JOIN OUR GHS ROBOTICS TEAM!
We are very excited about the launch of our first team here at GHS; our FRC Competitive Robotics team! This is a great opportunity and I am very excited to have the chance to lead us in our first year!
We will have our first student meeting during Lunch, Tuesday 9/27. This will be to discuss initial interest and opportunities for all students! We need individuals with mechanical skills, programming and coding skills, driving (Remote control) skills, website creation, graphic design, and many others. This is not just programming and coding as there are many different skills needed to running and operating a FRC team! Information will be passed out at lunch on Tuesday, 9/27.
Parents/Possible Mentors: Interested in getting involved? This team is not just another after school program for your students to attend. I am looking for multiple adult mentors to assist with running, operating, and executing the different phases of the team/season. The more the merrier as more mentors will allow for a rotation and may be easier on total commitments. Please reach out to Roderick MacNeil by email email@example.com. All skills and backgrounds accepted!
