Programing, building, and designing are all apart of the things that make up the robotics club in Brien Mcmahon. Robotics club is the newest club to be created at Brien McMahon high school and is all about introducing young who have an interest in engineering to hone their creative abilities and building skills. You will learn many different things in robotics such as coding, design, and much more about the field of robotics. You will learn how to use the programs ROBOTC and VEXcortex which are a specified easy to learn robot language.
The clubs president and creator is Jake Yonkers who said he had become interested in robotics when he was introduced to it in Project Lead the Way. “My first Project Lead the Way class in 11th grade was “Principles of Engineering” and in it we did a unit on robotics and I realized that I loved it.” Jake isn't the only person who is glad that the robotics club was created, Jack Carlan another member of the robotics club is also very excited that this club was created “Robotics was something that I was interested and was glad that it was started.”
If you are interested in joining the Robotics club then there are many different ways that you can join. You can join by talking to Jake or by talking to Mr.Grillo who is in room 1185. The club meets every Wednesday for two hours after school. The club could use some new members and people should join this club because according to the clubs president Jake “People should join to be introduced to some of the practices of engineers. Also it is very fun.”
