Robotics season is in full swing as they begin to initiate and train new members. Despite their busy schedule with upcoming competitions, meetings and marketing opportunities, they have found the time to make their new recruits feel welcome. On top of this, the leaders must teach the new recruits how to build, market, handle new technology, and stay safe all the while. Although it seems difficult to teach so much information in such a short period of time, this team is able to juggle training and progression remarkably well.
“It’s really calm, surprisingly calm, because even though everyone knows what they’re doing, they bring you in in a way that makes you feel like you know what you’re doing even if you probably don’t,” freshman Emily Ammerman said.
For the team, the most important piece of knowledge that new members must have is safety codes. Because of this, the team focuses on making sure that everyone is up to date on this and performs their tasks in the correct way.
“Well, we have to learn about safety in all of our rooms, because we do use heavy machinery so they tell us about the safety and their procedure of how they do things,” Ammerman said.
