Senior robotics club president George Hare said he first joined robotics because of his interest in math and science and seeing a good opportunity to improve his skills.

“What sparked my interest in robotics is that I want to go into engineering, and robotics is a really cool way to get involved with that, and I really like math, and I really like science, and it was an applied version of all of that and has really helped me expand my skills,” Hare said.

Hare said he felt compelled to become captain of the robotics team because he felt inspired to pass on what he had learned.

“I wanted to be captain because I believe leadership is really a way to pass on things to the next generation, particularly in robotics, where it’s really a skill oriented thing. Being captain allows you to inspire the next generation of students and pass on your knowledge,” Hare said.

Robotics member Sean McSherry said he attributes their accomplishments last year to Hare.

“George led us to semi-finals in our regional competition last year, something we had never accomplished before,” McSherry said.

Hare said he hopes the robotics team improves this year and goes to the world championship.

“My goals for this year is to go to the world championship. Last year we got to State championships and we want to step it up. We want to get there through training and working to do better,” Hare said.

Robotics member Austin Patterson said Hare brings a lot of spirit to the club.

“George has embraced the idea of team spirit, but in a really unique way,” Patterson said.

McSherry said he looks forward to seeing where the club goes this year under Hare’s leadership.

“He’s done a great job so far, and I’m really excited to see where George being Captain takes us,” McSherry said.

Adviser declined to comment.
