Junior Keegan Krol and other Robotics team members sit around a Dell computer, ready to learn about the basics of programming from the captain at their meeting Oct. 4.

Krol said he joined the Robotics team to learn valuable skills for the future.

“I mean for one just the whole getting involved hands on something, physical and technical, it’s just kind of a good background to have,” Krol said. “So is the business side of it and then learning programming. There’s just a lot of little things to learn that will help me later on.”

Adviser Trevor Paulson said he is not used to working with robots but he enjoys playing with them.

“I grew up doing more house construction building and stuff less on the true robotics or that kind of area, but I still like to dinker with toys and remote control cars,” Paulson said.

Paulson said robotics is more than just building the robot, it takes aspects from the business side to help to.

“A lot of people think robotics as like one specific item but even as far as going out and doing public relations and the website and finding sponsors and mentors and other helpers,” Paulson said. “I mean there’s just so much involved in it that it’s kind of hard to find someone that wouldn’t have something to contribute.”

Paulson said he helps out with the building of the robot but they need people in other areas of the team.

“I’m more on the building and the design computer part of it but we’re trying to find more people that are interested in doing some of the true science, math, engineering part of it,” Paulson said.

The next Robotics meeting will take place after school Oct. 11 in room B114.
