It’s Time to Begin…

The Gearheads are happy to announce that our first official team meeting for the year will be happening next Monday, Sept. 17, at 5:30 in the Woods Lab.  We welcome any interested students, potential mentors or sponsors to come and check us out. We will be meeting on Monday nights until Christmas break.  This fall we will be working on learning or improving our skills in building and programming robots, fundraising, a possible entry into the FIRST parody contest, and team building.   FIRST is about "more than robots" so we need students with a wide variety of skills or interests. This is a great time for those who are curious about robotics but don't have any skills yet to give it a try.  We love teaching them, so no experience is necessary!

We will also be preparing for an offseason competition on Oct. 13, in Roseville.   Interested students are invited to attend.  If they want to travel with the team, we need to know by Oct. 1st so we can plan transportation. (Attend a meeting and let us know)  Like all FIRST Robotics events, this will be open to the public, so anyone interested could also drive down themselves.  If you do, stop by our pit, and say "hi". Offseason competitions are very fun.  They have all the competition of a regular season competition, but less pressure to win.  These are usually times to train in new drivers, and make friends with other teams.
