Westwood Robotics has been gearing up for the new season early in the opening school year with several events for team members new and old.
During the summer, we hosted a team workshop hosted by leaders current and graduated. Members were taught some mechanical and electronic skills as well as the background of FIRST, how competitions work, and the spirit of robotics.
We have presented in school demonstrations such as displaying our 2015 Recycle Rush robot during the Class of 2019 freshmen orientation, the opening-year assembly, and the school-wide club expo.
In addition to fixing the 2014 Aerial Assist robot during team meetings, 2478 has been holding safety and machine training in order to instruct members in preparation for the necessary application of skills during build season.
