If you are interested in joining the Robo Vikes talk to Mr. Depta, who is the coach of the robotics team. Currently we are meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on announced Saturdays from 11am to 5pm. At these meetings, we are working on off- season projects that include a ball shooter, a t-shirt cannon, two drive trains, and an articulating arm. Anyone is welcome to come for as long or short as they would like to help out.
The robotics team offers many ways to help. The team needs members for CAD, marketing, website design, newsletter writers, business, media, design, fabrication, and assembly. The team also does outreach by helping some of the feeder schools with their First Lego League (FLL) teams, attending Engineering Week at The Fort Worth Museum of Science and Industry and UTA Research Institutes. Robotics team graduates have gone on to major in medicine, business, and liberal arts as well as engineering.
Being in robotics also opens doors for college scholarship money, and it looks good on a resume.
Our main form of communication for meetings and projects is robovikes4206.slack.com. The best way to join the team is to come and be as involved as you can. The more you put in, the more you get out!
