Robotics gets into full gear

TECHED OUT Testing a program, Austin Beetson, sophomore, tries to simulate their robot. He worked to build a 14 foot tall windmill that will power an irrigation system.

Robotics has officially begun their season, but not without changes. 

“FIRST Robotics had decided to do summer competitions, but because it’s really hard to coordinate, we are not going to participate,” Amelia Konstantinopoulos, junior, said. “Instead, we are going to potentially have a scrimmage with high schools in the area.”

In addition to the scrimmage, Robotics is able to focus more on side projects like creating the maker space and continuing their work on Project Green.

“Even though we’re not able to have a competition season this year, I think we’re still doing great things,” Amelia said. “The bond that we’re all having, laughing with each other and just having fun and doing what we like is great.”
