MEET OUR TEAM!

In addition to the jobs listed, all team members work on building our robot, Charlie 5.0. On top of this, all members of our team know how to drive our robot and we have primary and backup drive teams.

On our team, we format job selection so that most jobs are made up of a mix of one 8th grader, one 7th grader, and one 6th grader. Due to the fact that we anticipate that our team members will continue on our team’s legacy, this structure helps ensure that the 6th graders on the team, who are new to robotics, get a chance to learn from those who are older and more experienced.
